the only spanish whisky ive tried is dyce i think it was called, and from what i remember it was pretty poor IMHO, i think when you put it in a market place against better known brands and better tasting whisky, there wouldnt be the demand, but i might be wrong, my opions are just based on my own persoanl taste buds, someone on here may like the stuff

I have just spent a good few days looking for and at international whiskies, but I never came across any from Spain.

Corsica, France, Wales, Bavaria, Austria, New Zealand, India, Scandinavia, even USA, Canada, Japan, Ireland and Scotland.
But nothing from Spain.

Availability limited due to the difficulty in sourcing traditional Scottish oak casks.... :roll:

Thanks for that, I'll watch out in case I see any around here.

I have a small section of such "oddities" in my personal collection.

theyd be as well using any casks they could get their hands on, as i doubt it would make it any better.

Hi there,

DYC belonging to Pedro Domeqc was merged one time with Allied Lyons and when Lyons was demerged out came Allied Domecq. Before that DYC had bought Lochside in 1973.

Lochside remained closed for only two years (from 1971 on) when Destilerias Y Crianza Del Whisky, abbreviated to DYC, acquired the distillery in order to improve the quality of the Spanish blends by using Scottish malt whisky. Most of the whisky produced at Lochside was shipped to Spain until 1996 when the last of the mature whisky left the distillery warehouse.

DYC was a part of Allied Domecq.

Allied Domecq is no longer, but DYC whisky is still made.

DYC is now with Fortune Brands.
