  • Whisky blending session with Grant‘s | WHISKY BROS (LITHUANIA)
    editor for Whisky Magazine I had a subscription of this one for a while in the past So I had nice time to chat about that and about other topics and trends in whisky industry including very actual topic about decreasing stock and whisky age Rob seemed to me very simple and great guy As ambassador and should be right So I was curious about what will be next And that was interesting in front of us we ve got 7 small bottles of whisky 2 grain and 5 single malts Just quick reminder blended whisky contains both grain and single malt whisky mixed together in top secret about proportions and contents while usually you can even get couple of dozen different ones inside According to Ambassador Grant s blends have proportion of about 70 Grain and the rest are Single Malts but few people knows which ones So we also didn t have much information about material to work with There were only few words on the bottles age over 12 strength and style Grains were Rich and Floral while Single Malts Peated Spicy I called him sherried as obviously it was the only one matured in a sherry cask butt Oily Sweet and Robust We were given a sample blend offering to make as much similar as possible I am suspecting that Secret blend was their new Grant s Select Reserve which is about 12 year old So logical No This is a guess as I am too proud to taste such simple whisky Well I am only sure that I had no occasion to try that one yet Because at the session we were using our noses only This is serious It wasn t simple tasting of several newly launched whiskies Well at the end my curiosity

  • Blended whiskies – old vs. new | WHISKY BROS (LITHUANIA)
    a chance to try well known blends Worth mentioning they weren t common those I had were from the past around 80 s So we tried Teacher s White Horse and Dimple 12 Year Old All bottled about 30 years ago For my own interest I will compare them with recent versions All of them still exists Teacher s and White Horse while I took Dimple 15 year old as I didn t find 12 yo version Some may ask why I want this Simply enough I have heard enough that older blends were better they had higher proportion of malt whisky higher quality etc On the label of old Teacher s I have there s even written that malt proportion is higher than 45 Most likely it s Ardmore right So let s just try and see what happens First one is White Horse some may know that in older times one of the ingredients maybe even the most important one was Lagavulin Yes So older one is really richer blend ir more delicate at the same time New one is very aromatic lot s of vanilla you can also feel more citrus fruits and alcohol Had to say if the time made first one more gentle or malts proportion was high But I liked that one much more I could even choose it for enjoinment instead of some nowadays malts For Teacher s case the difference is even higher With new one it s even worse and I really liked the older one which has less intensive aroma but much deeper character more notes Modern Teacher s punches me back with its synthetic vanilla and caramel hard to find other notes With Dimple we have bit different situation as whiskies are matured for longer period 12 and 15
