Blended Scotch Whisky
Blended scotches are, as the name suggests, a combination of two or more scotch whiskies.
Blended Malt Whiskey is a fusion of single malt whiskeys from different distilleries; if a bottle is labelled ‘malt’ or ‘pure malt’, it is most likely to be a blended malt; creating an aroma and flavour of the brand as opposed to the distillery.
Blended Whiskey is a medley of different types of Whiskey from many different distilleries, thereby enabling the blender to produce a strain, which is consistent with their brand as opposed to that of any particular distillery. Most Scotch, Irish and Canadian Whiskey is sold as part of a blend, even when the spirits are the product of one distillery.
Owing to a recent increase in the popularity of sweet-tasting alcoholic beverages, many American Whiskey purveyors have started to produce Liqueur Whiskeys. Although such products have recently become popular, Liqueur whiskeys have been routinely made by Scottish distillers for more than 100 years. As with their US counterparts, traditional Scotch Liqueur whiskies often use honey to sweeten them; however, they enhance their depth and flavour by using other ingredients such as citrus, coffee, almonds, cinnamon, vanilla, herbs and spices.
Next time you fancy a smooth, sweet Liqueur Whiskey over ice on a hot evening- try a traditional Scotch Liqueur- you will not be disappointed!
