Twhisky Fri 12th June 8:30pm GMT: Revenge Of The Blends Et Al

Join us in an epic battle, which will basically consist of trying to get though this colossal list of whiskies…

We’ve all done it; thinking we know best and turning our noses up at the proffered dram from a bottle that says BLEND on it. But there’s more to it than that.

Vatted, Malt, Blend, Grain – the distinctions will be made, compared and contrasted, and hopefully explained. We’re out to investigate these fickle beasties properly this time, without the aid of cola or Canada Dry, and I already know that there are some that would give even the pricier single malts a run for their money.

As ever, we’ll be tweeting live, going through the tried and tested format of nose/palate/finish under the #twhisky hashtag, so spread the word (and the cost – if you rope a couple of mates in…) and get your weekend off to a sociable start, with a wee bit of knowledge and a couple of opinions thrown in for good measure…

Here are the candidates (you’re bound to be able to lay your hands on at least one of these!):

Whyte & Mackay Old Luxury 19 Year Old
Whyte & Mackay Supreme 22 Year Old

Monkey Shoulder
Pig’s Nose
Sheep Dip

Compass Box Peat Monster
Compass Box Peat Monster Reserve
Compass Box Flaming Heart
Compass Box Asyla
Compass Box Hedonism
Compass Box Oak Cross

Black Bottle

There may be more. There may be special guests.

Look forward to seeing you on the internets.
