Blended Malt Whisky

A blended malt whisky is simply a whisky which has been made by combining two or more single malt whiskies together.

 

Take a dash of Talisker add it to a slosh of Glenfiddich and, Voila! You have your very own blended malt whisky. As you might expect putting these blended malts together takes a little bit more thought and precision than that but it gives you the general idea on what they are and how they can be made.

 

For a long time this category was known as 'Vatted Malts' and it was only recently that the SWA (Scotch Whisky Association) legally defined it as 'blended malts'. 'Vatting' is the verb for combining different casks of whisky together so many people, including producers of whisky, were not particularly taken by this change at first. The boutique whisky maker Compass Box, in particular, had a strong affection for the term and on the very last day the it could be used on a bottle of whisky (Nov. 22nd 2011) they released a bottling called 'The Last Vatted Malt'.

 

Although less common than single malt whisky or traditional blended whisky there are a number of notable blended malts that you may recognise - Monkey Shoulder, Big Peat and Johnnie Walker Green label being among them. Blended malt whiskies combine the easy drinking nature of standard blends with the complex flavours of single malts which gives the drinker the best of both worlds.
