My own blended whisky.

Miscellanea My whisky collection Testing / Tasting


Today tasting notes of created by myself blend Lukloveswhisky 18 years old. The circumstances of making it I described in the previous post.

For the record blend was created in Grant’s Blending Room and consists of six components: 1 grain whisky and 5 single malts. I decided on the following proportions: Rich Grain 30%, Sweet Malt 10%, Floral Malt 10%, Robust Malt 20%, Spicy Malt 20% and Peated Malt 10%. In the final effect we have 18 years old, natural colour, unchillfiltered and cask strength ab. 58-60%.

C: amber,

N: cookies, milk chocolate, white chocolate, further – ripe red fruit and hungarian plum, some toffee and citrus, deeper: gentle touch of peat with a slight spiciness, water liberates a large dose of citruses,

T: fast growing, quite oily, a lot of toffee interwoven with pepper, dark chocolate, oak notes and a touch of peat, with the time – ripe and overripe fruits appear: pears, bananas and apples, also plums in chocolate and grapefruit, after adding water more bitterness, reinforcing fruits, more apple and pear,

F: long with grapefruit and light bitterness.

As I have composed this whisky I will not admit its any specific points. I am tempted just to say that it is very good. To complete happiness I would add more Peated Malt.

Creating your own blended whisky is a very interesting experience. Such experiments can be performed either by yourself at home, starting from mixing of 2-3 single malts. Eg. light Lowland with Speyside matured in sherry casks with good peated one from Islay. That will make you a very nice blended malt. Good luck!
