What is blending? What is its purpose?
A number of distilleries bottle and sell some of the whisky they distil for consumption as single or unblended whiskies. By far the greater part of their production, however, is used for the well-known blended Scotch whiskies that are sold all over the world.
What is a deluxe blended Scotch whisky?
It is a blend which contains a higher proportion of carefully selected older and, therefore, more expensive whiskies.
