  • You'll Not Find This Man in The MacGregor Clan

    Mar 23, 2004 by Bruguru is a Lead on Epinions in Restaurants & Gourmet
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's cheap.
    Cons: Lacks character.

    Summary: Let’s get one thing perfectly clear: I’m not a scotch guru. To be sure, I do enjoy Scotch whiskey on occasion, and I’ve been known to appreciate it for its distinct flavors and warming properties on a cold winter’s night. And why not? ... read more

    Pros: I cant name one...
    Cons: The worst thing I have ever tried to consume....willingly

    Summary: So, I live with my room/bandmate Caleb. Caleb and I are definitely not picky when it comes to alcohol...like...at all. A good night for us is shooting Aristocrat vodka with water being the chaser... why water? Cause, it takes four times as much water ... read more

  • A great scotch

    Pros: Economical. Keeps the body warm.
    Cons: No wide mouth option.

    Summary: It seemed the whole apartment complex was drinking heavily just to get through the winter. And to add to it, the gas line had ruptured so we were all without heat. The part time contractor and full time drunk downstairs told us that we would have to ... read more

  • Nice Alternate When the Chips or Stocks are Down.

    May 21, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Clan MacGregor is a nice light alternative to more expensive brands.
    Cons: May not be as flavorful as some of the more expensive brands.

    Summary: In the last year, my husband and I have been going through some rough spots financially. So, we have been searching for a cheaper alternative to Ballantines, or Buchannan's. Clan MacGregor is it! It has a nice smooth light flavor that is not messed up ... read more

    Pros: Smooth, woody, inexpensive and no hangover.
    Cons: Less character than a fine single-malt.

    Summary: I find Clan McGregor to be a fine scotch for everyday use.  I was a fan of Cutty Sark, Dewars, Johnnie Walker and other mid-range blended scotches.  My local dealer recommended Clan McGregor one day as a less expensive alternate and as what the ... read more

    Pros: Complex yet mild, affordable and easy drinking for those who wish to get one-eyed
    Cons: The finish/aftertaste carry a niggling of cheap whisky (this is wiped out with milk)

    Summary: I have been around the block with scotches, and strictly on a dollar-for-flavor basis, MacGregor DELIVERS. I enjoy this scotch straight, on the rocks, spritzed, with milk, in coffee... you name it. It is a great mixing scotch, especially if you like ... read more

  • For the Price A Decent Scotch

    Pros: It's a good cheap Scotch, the best inexpensive one I've found.
    Cons: It lacks a really distinctive flavour. It is a nice, but uninspired Scotch.

    Summary: I discovered Clan McGregor Memorial Day weekend 2010.It was on sales in New Hampshire at 14 USD for a 1.75 litre bottle.It is not rough like Scorsby and is nearly as palatable as Grant's Scotch, which, I understand, blends it. I have ... read more

  • This brand is underrated...

    Pros: Easy on the wallet. I give it a 6 out of a 10.
    Cons: I think this would be a much better offering if aged a bit...

    Summary: Not bad for a low priced import. I like this on the rocks, and keep the bottle chilled in the fridge. Yeah, the bottle's made of plastic, but I didn't notice anything off, like maybe a plastic taste. I didn't detect anything like ... read more

    Pros: Normally good taste when glass bottled
    Cons: Plastic bottles add terrible taste!

    Summary: I've been drinking Clan MacGregor and enjoying it.  However just bought 1.75 liter made from palstic.  Ugh!  Plastic adds a  terrible taste!! Suggest avoid the palstic bottles and only buy Clan MacGregor in glass ... read more

    Pros:  Distilled in Scottish distillery conforming to the standards of Scotch Whisky.
    Cons: You can't eat the bottle.

    Summary: This is a fine Scotch Whisky from Scotland. You can really taste the sweet corn and the nice sour mash. Just sip a couple shots with your eyes closed and you might think this is Kentucky Bourbon. If they didn't add Caramel color to the ... read more

    Pros: Cheap, Decent flavor
    Cons: Terrible hangover

    Summary: I came across this Scotch by default. A buddy of mine and I went to a bar named Milo's in Arlington, TX. I was short on cash, and wanted some Scotch. My choices were Johnny Walker Black or Clan MacGregor- a big difference in price and, I assumed, flavor. ... read more

    Pros: wallet friendly, very enjoyable while not being a snob
    Cons: you my friend will find it on the bottom shelf

    Summary: I must say this is the best bang for the buck as far as scotch whiskey blends.  It does feel a little young on the palette a little peaty. Most certainly for the price it can take you places. They say if you wanna dance you have to pay, this may not ... read more

    Pros: Cheap and good enough.
    Cons: A bit chemical in aftertaste.

    Summary: I live in Holland where I purchase a litre for € 13,- and behold my surprise it tastes good for this bottom shelf Whisky. I experienced a lot of different whisky's and Clan MacGregor lacks the smoothness of, for instance, Famous Grouse. It is ... read more

    Pros: Surprisingly good.
    Cons: Bottom shelf.

    Summary: If there were a competition for under $10 scotches this would be the hands-down winner. This whisky is as good as the $20 level Irish offerings only it is a scotch as has a more peaty flavor of course. It is a lighter flavor than most other blends but ... read more

  • One of the Standards and Competing Well

    Pros: 1. Cost; 2. Youth; 3. Grains
    Cons: 1. Will not give you cheap access to the Islay-heavy blends.

    Summary: Clan MacGregor is blended by William Grant & Sons--the Maker of Grant's Family Reserve Scotch. The cost is very inexpensive, which puts some folks off it--but then again, it is a testament to the value of marketing. These same folks will gladly fork ... read more

    Pros: Value. Is it worth what I paid ? No doubt...Aye!
    Cons: Destined to remain on the bottom shelf...bad for MacGregor.......Good for me...

    Summary: While on layover in downtown Indianapolis, I asked the hotel concierge where I might find a local source for the acquisition of a private supply of imbibement. The hotel concierge looked at me in a way that spoke of amusement and asked me if I was ... read more

    Pros: Smooth light taste, hangover friendly, cheap
    Cons: Drink it by itself and in moderation if your not used to scotch

    Summary: It's a little lacking in character, but the the taste is good. Some feel it is a little alcoholy, but I find it smooth. On nights when I overindulge, it's not bad on the head at all. I do not recomend having The Clan following gallons of beer, it does ... read more

    Pros: Price, taste and knowing you're getting something good .
    Cons: Sorry, no super models leaving their lipstick on a glass so you pay too much.

    Summary: I discovered Clan MacGregor by being just about broke. It is the cheapest scotch in the liquor store. I've read the competing opinions on Cutty Sark and MacGregor and since there is absolutely no difference in the taste the only conclusion I can reach is ... read more

  • What can I say? I like it

    Pros: It's cheap, and I like it.
    Cons: Hmm...can't think of one. Oh, I can't be a snob while I drink it.

    Summary: Several years ago, before I retired from the US Navy, I was pretty strapped for cash. I had three kids from a previous marriage, remarried and with a young 'un from the new marriage. Since military folk don't get paid much, I didn't like to spend much on ... read more
