Malty malts

Postby Drrich1965 » Thu Oct 12, 2006 5:14 pm

When I think of malty single malts, I think of Glengoyne 10. Yummy. What other single malts are very malty, and what are your favorites?

I'll agree with you on that one. Tamdu NAS spring to mind. We've kind of had this one before BTW:

Edit: Just checked the thread and I said Tamdu last time as well :)

Of course Tamdhu is even maltier ;)

A few 'malty' ones that spring to mind are:

Longmorn 15yr
Royal Lochnagar 12yr
Mortlach 15yr
Glenlivet 12yr
Glenfarclas 15yr

and a blended:

Grant's Ale cask

Mmmm some of favourites in that list!

Cheers, Paul

Wow, that might be the most educational tread I have read on whisky! Fantastic.


Thanks to all who replied thus far. I would had Bunnahabain 12 to the list, and the Bruich 10 certainly is on that for me. Working my way through a great old indy Glen Livet that is very malty at its core, with other elements providing compliment. That is what I liked the most from the old thread; one posters notion that a malty malt is not defined by the absence of other elements, but by the center or core being malty, or in my words, memmorably malty.

I raised malt monsters as a topic some time ago. It ran aground because I think we had different ideas about what malty meant. For me, it is a new-makey kind of taste that I have found most strongly in Tamnavulin. Some of the "malty" ones in this thread and the previous one just don't match with my idea of malty. Presumably other people find my own idea of malty just as mystifying.
