Where can i find information about blended whisky?

Postby Droganoc » Mon May 02, 2005 10:07 pm

I have tried several single malt scotches, and quite a few blends. I find that information is plentiful on single malt scotch whisky, but hard to find when it comes to blends. Anyone have a web address?
Some of the whiskies i've tried are:
Famous Grouse
Mclellands Lowland and Islay
Crawfords
Johnny Walker Black Label
Glenlivet
Pinch (Dimple Pinch In U.S.)
Chivas Regal 12 year old
Glenmorangie

I've just purchased an interesting bottle of Buchanan's 12 year old deluxe. The bottle is one of the most ornate i've seen with a wax seal on both sides of the bottle. I hope it's as good as it looks. :wink:

A good place to start is:

http://www.scotchwhisky.net/blended/

It has information on a lot of the more well known blends.

Cheers

If you have any specific questions about certain blends, or even just blending in general, it's worth posting them here....the collective brain power of the forum's users seems to satisfactorily answer 95% of such queries.

BTW, the Buchanan's 12 year old was quite a pleasant.....

experience. I've never tasted anything quite like it. I'm not an expert taster, i wouldn't even consider myself a qualified amateur. But i think that if i were wandering in the deep woods, and ran into a group of magical scottish elves, and they offered me some scotch, this is what it would taste like. It was very warm and soothing, almost like some magical elixer given to you to heal your wounded soul. I recommend it highly. Wow.

Get yourself a copy of Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2005 it is cheap (about £10) and includes all Whisk(e)y. You will see that he rates some everyday blends very highly indeed (subject of previous debates on this forum).
Keep drinking

Jim Murray's 'Classic Blended Scotch' is excellent.
