  • Old Smuggler Scotch: Not Bad, Not Bad At All.

    Oct 3, 2008 by popsrocks is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Restaurants & Gourmet
    Rated a Very Helpful Review

    Very smooth. Inexpensive


    Not ovely flavourful Lacks basic smokey notes. Just a tad grainy

    Summary: I was given a one liter bottle of Old Smuggler Scotch recently. One reason was because my son wanted to give a little something for me. If he purchased a bottle of rum, tequilla, or other such Caribbean based alcohol I would have to share it with my ... read more

  • Better than J&B

    Pros: -Great finish -Smooth -inexpensive
    Cons: -Not as full flavored and thinner -Somewhat hard to find

    Summary: I have yet to find a bottle of scotch in the $0 to $29 per 750 ml range that is as good as this. I thought it had tastes that were comparable to some $30 to $40 bottles and was nearly as smooth but not quite as strong and much more thin. I actually liked ... read more

  • I Would Prefer to Smuggle this Scotch OUT of the Country

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive. If your goal is to get drunk, it will help you achieve it.
    Cons: Bitter and unrefined.

    Summary: I was sitting around after having finished a bottle of G lenmorangie 12 Year Old, Port Wood Finish, Highland Single Malt Whisky and decided, after recently dropping $50 on a fifth of the wonderful malt, to try something ... read more

    Pros: Can be distinctly recognized as Scotch Whisky that will not empty the bank.
    Cons: Old Smuggler does lack the full flavor of a better scotch whisky.

    Summary: My first impression was: cheap, bottom shelf and not to expect too much. However, Old Smuggler surprised me by offering two very important aspects of a decent scotch 1) The smooth carmel flavor followed by 2) a rich smoke that lingers. It isn't the ... read more

  • Missing Old Smugglers(1.75) liters

    Pros: Old Smugglers is the smoothest available; beats JW Red and Dewars and is affordable.
    Cons: Availability of 1.75 liter bottles is real problem in North Carolina.

    Summary: Brunswick county N.C. residents are experiencing significant difficulty in purchasing 1.75 liters of Smugglers.This is a reoccurring problem. It appears that an unfair advantage is being given to other brands. Local liquor stores in Sunset ... read more

    Pros: Drinkable, mixes well, affordable... has a nice fragrance, smooth
    Cons: Not as good as Dewars or J & B, but still very drinkable. 

    Summary: If you are looking for a smooth, drinkable scotch, that's affordable, this is a good choice.  I really enjoy it. It lets you know you are drinking whiskey, but doesn't kick you in the head like most American whiskeys. I like it much better than the ... read more

    Pros: Good value for money!
    Cons: Stronger than many could hold...

    Summary: Recently I have been buying primarily good and expensive whiskies, but today I decided to take and try just by the way an Old Smuggler. What a nice surprise for the money you spend on it. I never expected to feel that good. Sharp and tasty before dinner. ... read more

    Pros: Good taste for the price. Not $50 for 750 ML.
    Cons: Not the finest, smoothest scotch on the market.

    Summary: I have searched for a long time for a decent, inexpensive scotch that doesn't taste like dung. This is definitely the best inexpensive scotch I've found. I originally started drinking the 12 year old (which I don't think is made any longer). It was quite ... read more

    Pros: Cheap
    Cons: Bottom shelf

    Summary: Sure it's cheap. Sure it's bottom shelf. However, if you avoid taking that sniff we all do with Scotch, and just take a swig, it's bearable. Inver House and Scoresby's rate way, way lower on my list. I paid something like $8.79 for a 750 ml ... read more
