Heughan’s Sassenach whisky recently received roaring reviews online. Many fans rushed to review the blended Scotch whisky online, with one even dubbing it “a smooth blend of tantalising flavours which dance on the tongue.”
One review on the Master of Malt website read: “I’m not a whisky drinker, but I found this blend to be incredibly smooth and delicious, particularly for a 40% plus spirit. I fear I may have found my gateway whisky drink!
“My husband is a huge single malt fan and was very dubious, particularly because of the price, but even he has had to admit it’s a really tasty dram! The design of the bottle is an extra perfect touch and I do worry I will need to buy a new bottle sooner than I hoped.
“More expensive because if the celebrity founder, however a genuinely great blend and I would highly recommend.”
