Trader Joe's Blended Scotch Whisky -- 190 lbs (-39) [10X]



I have been a big fan of Trader Joe's ever since I figured out the difference between it and Trader Vic's (which I am also a fan of). Thanks to Washington State privatizing liquor sales last year, I can purchase Trader Joe's branded whisky, which fits nicely into my budget. After my recent forays into bottom-shelf whisky, I am a bit surprised at how good this is. Trader Joe's Blended Scotch Whisky tastes similar to Johnnie Walker Red, and Red's more economical competitor, Monarch of the Glen. It is bottled by Alexander Murray & Co, the same export/import company that supplies some of Costco's branded whisky (which I have yet to try). Measuring Trader Joe's whisky without spilling was a bit challenging and gave me a chance to try my last unutilized Xmas gift--a no-spill bottle pourer that works like a charm.
