White Horse - Logan De Luxe 12 Years Old 1980s Goan Import

$225 AUD

43% ABV

70 cl

For some reason Logan has had a strong following in Portugal for a number of years. This is an interesting example as it is imported into the former Portuguese territory of Goa by United Distillers’ own subsidiary at Velha. It comes in an early version at 43% in a 70 cl bottle complete with box.

The back label carries the importer’s details.

This product is located in the United Kingdom.



More traditionally, the higher priced variations of White Horse have been the preserve of a subsidiary brand, currently known as Logan Heritage. It has been around under that name since 2014 when Diageo removed the “12 years old” tag which had applied to its predecessors known variously as Laird O’ Logan, Logan’s Deluxe or just Logan. With a strong following in Portugal, this deluxe version of White Horse is almost as old as the original blend registered in 1891 and appeared a decade later as a tribute to Peter Mackie’s late uncle, James Logan Mackie. Previously known as Logan’s Perfection and Logan’s Superb, it appeared in the 1960’s as Logan’s Extra Age Superb.
