It's a bit over the top to predict the end of single malt sales. Do you really think Laphroaig, Highland Park, Springbank to name just few are going to kill off their lucrative malt sales? The very reason they vatt their malts with 1% of another distillery is to protect the single malt name! All the cask that are vatted with 1% go to belending, there will always be single malts as long as distilleries are in production.
