Bartender’s Club Blended Scotch Whisky (40%)

Bartender’s Club is a private label product of Rimi Baltic, owned by Swedish company ICA. Rimi headquarters is in Riga and the products are on sale in every Baltic state. There is not any info available about this whisky, just it’s produced in Scotland and bottled in Estonia. Matured 3 years, like every scotch whisky needs to be. It’s the cheapest whisky in stores, 70cl bottle can cost under 10€. 20cl bottle was 3.89€ at Rimi in Estonia.

Bartender’s Club reminds Johnnie Walker’s Red Label, aroma and taste have quite much the same, just it’s more light, boozy and even sweeter. So it’s kinda poor man’s version of Red Label. I won’t be surprised if the whisky comes from Diageo, just they have added more grain whisky on it. So Bartender’s Club whiskey is very light, easy to drink but very boring. Taste is light and sweet, woody, there is nothing to say about the aftertaste. Certainly lots of neutral grain spirit used here to get the selling price on very low.
