Lemon Hart Rum / Bot.1970s
75cl / 40% – An old Golden Jamaica Rum from Lemon Hart. This is from the 1970s just soon after they altered their blend.
Question by sever: Single Malt, Malt and Blended Whiskey / Scotch. Whats the distinction?
OK this is what I know, correct me if I am incorrect and fill in the gaps:
Single Malt Whiskey: comes from a single barrel and is created from a single kind of barley (ie malt), also this is only created from barley and no other type of grain
Blended Whiskey: i guess is blended from various types of whiskeys, i also study someplace its blended from not only barley whiskeys, but other grain whiskeys and other neutral spirits (vodka?)
Malt Whiskey: Is blended only from single malt whiskeys, and no grain whiskeys or other spirits
Did I get this appropriate? Please appropriate me anyone if anything is not appropriate.
so what does it mean when it says “Malt Whisky” on a bottle of Popular Grouse?
Answer by MasterPython
Malt is sprouted barely. Malt whisky is made only with malted barely. There is also grain whisky that is produced with malted and non sprouted grain.
Single malt whisky is produced from all malt whisky from one particular distillery. If it all comes from one particular barrel it really is named single barrel whisky. If it is a mixture of malt whiskys from diferent distilleries it’s get in touch with a vatted malt.
Blended whisky is a mixture of malt and grain whisky typically from several distilleries.
Scotch whisky is spelt with no “e”
