Best economoy blend?

Postby sddrammer » Tue Mar 19, 2013 10:13 am

I'm looking for a cheap blended scotch to be drank neat, I'm thinking something sweet. My favorites I keep stocked are Laphroaig 10, Highland park 12 and johnnie walker black. I love the smoke but am looking to add a cheaper sweeter whisky into the rotation as well. I like glenfiddich and glenlivet 12s, but i'm looking for something cheaper. I'm looking for the least grainy, most sweet and floral of these listed, what fits the bill?

I would have put Teachers Highland Cream on the list. Cheap but my go to daily blend. Try it sometime. For the price you won't have lost anything.

I can't really comment on the five listed. Peat lovers may want to try Black Bottle, and the latest Tweeddale Blend (Batch 3) looks very tempting, on paper it looks top notch. Usually i would just go for BNJ.

I'm interested in Teachers but can't find it near me in San Diego. Also, I'm looking fora non-peated fora change up, as all of my other favorites are smoky.

I have two very good blends in my stock at the moment - my favourite is the BNJ or "Baile Nicol Jarvie" which has one of the highest malt contents of any blended whisky and contains only "first class" ranked malts in the blend. A bargain at approx. £20 although hard to find in supermarkets etc.

Also I've been introduced to "Monkey Shoulder"which is a little more expensive - more likely to be nearer the £30 mark. It consists of a blend of 3 single malts and is very smooth with hints of spice and citrus with a lingering vanilla sweetness. Named after a shoulder strain commonly experienced by the malt-men of old whilst shovelling malted barley by hand.

Good luck with your search.

considering your single malt preferences, I'd recommend Islay Mist.
