A balanced and calming blend that mixes light green grassy elements, some muesli and cold salted butter. A hint of mint and lime opens into citrus. Water broadens things, though they always remain in the grassy realm.

A sweet start. In fact, it’s really, really sweet, with a slight thickening on the mid palate, where there’s greengage and light citrus on the end. A well-balanced and supple afternoon blend that takes mixers well. Water shows how the lightly oxidised Sherried note in the centre adds both coherence and complexity.

Melting barley sugar and mint.

A new – to me – bottler set up by industry legend Willie Phillips and Don Sutcliffe. The whiskies used include: North British, Strathclyde, Cameronbridge, Glenfarclas, Ben Nevis, Balvenie, Kininvie, Glenfiddich, Allt-a’Bhainne, Auchroisk, Glenallachie, Westport, Speyside and Macallan. Blending and marrying is in first-fill oloroso Sherry butts

Blended Malts

Blended Malts

Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (previously known as Vatted Malt or Pure Malt) is a blend of different single malt whiskies from several distilleries. The malts would have been skilfully selected to create an whisky of unique and idiosyncratic character. The vatting process (re-casking into a single container) allows the flavours of the individual malts to integrate (to "marry" together).

However, unlike the whiskies simply labelled as "Blends/Blended", vatted malts do not contain any grain whisky

One of the most renowned ambassadors of the vatted malts category has been Johnnie Walker Green Label. Other examples include Poit Dhubh,  Eleuthera by Compass Box (vatted from Caol Ila and Clynelish), Macphails and Berry Bros. & Rudd's pride, Blue Hanger
