40%?!?!?!?

Postby BruceCrichton » Thu May 10, 2001 6:23 pm

I was looking at www.oddbins.co.uk and at their blends section and they said that a blend must be a minimum of 40% malt.

Surely this is rubbish. The only 40% minimum is the alcohol.

Can anyone help?

afaik, few blends have a 40pc malt content. It is certainly not a legal requirement for a Scotch whisky (although a 40pc abv is).

I think the Oddbins branch has made an error.
