Blended Scotch whiskies are the product of single malt whiskies and grain whiskies combined. They represent an astonishing 90% of the world market for Scotch whiskies, and are a product created with great skill by Scotland's few Master Blenders. A blend is like a whisky jigsaw, created to be a careful balance of flavours and ages, and offer extremely good value drinking. We carry a range of blends from the old classics through to the more boutique and small-batch varieties, including some Blended Malts (formerly known as vatted malts) that are comprised solely of single-malt whiskies.
