Scotch Whisky, a documentary

Postby Swede » Fri Mar 29, 2013 12:32 am

A full length documentary on Scotch that's well worth an hour and a half with a fine tipple in hand...

Good watch, even if inaccurate at times. Couldn't help but having a few drams of Benriach 12 on the way....

Great find thank you for posting - loved the careful explanation of how blended scotch is high class grain neutral blended with higher class "single" cask aged malt. This is the exact technique that I (amongst others like Harry) advocate for the home distiller - craft your high ABV pot distilled and cask aged malted barley whisky and blend it with your best grain neutral to create faux Brand Scotch Whisky. This is not to be confused with American Bourbon style corn whiskey or Canadian style rye whiskey. And yes liquid barley malt (LME) is acceptable, in MHO, for a home distiller's wash for those more interested in good results than pedantic technique. :beer:

I paired my phone with my xbox hooked to my hdmi 1080p tv. When I get time I'll be watching it on that combo.
Distill safe. Make good cuts. Enjoy yourself. Give as much as you take. Have fun doing this incredibly hard work. Be a good example. It's your hobby.
