Category: Blended Scotch

Date Tasted:
Country: Scotland

Bright gold color. Attractive, nutty aromas and flavors of butter roasted nuts, chocolate chip cookie dough, cedar incense, and cream of wheat with a supple, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, stimulating, medium-length finish with elements of praline, sweet maple cream, delicate dried fruits, and limestone and wood smoke finish. A flavorful, nutty, toasty blended scotch.

Blended Scotch whiskies require a mix of dozens of different malt whiskies to be combined with grain whisky in order to create the desired blend. The individual percentages of each malt whisky may be small, but each contributes its unique character to the blend. A blender will thus need to buy or produce a large amount of different malt whiskies in order to maintain the consistency of the blend. Thus, for a malt whisky distillery, the single malt may get all of the glory, but the blends ultimately pay the bills.
