During Whiskybadet last Autumn I tasted Seagram’s 100 Pipers Deluxe Blended Scotch Whisky. We watched the movie Bonnie Scotland that evening. The name of the whisky refers to the fight between Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites, as told in the ballad “The Hundred Pipers”.
Seagram’s was founded in Canada in 1857. Today the products are divided between different owners. Pernod Ricard owns 100 Pipers. The whisky is not available in Norway. 100 Pipers is particularly popular in Thailand and India. I have not found any information about which whiskies it is a blend of.
Malty on the nose. I get cookies, camphur and oak. It is a bit sharp. Quite smooth on the palate. White pepper, salt, oranges and peaches. Sweet. The finish is smooth and watery. Peaches, white pepper and nut shells.
My score: nose 19 / taste 20 / finish 20 / balance 20 = 79
