My Own Blend

Inspired by the success of the Master of Malt Brown Drink which always appears to be popular, and the fact that I like trying new and different things, I thought I would take a leaf out of their book and try it myself. I have a collection of around 30 whiskies at the moment so figured I would take a few of these, mainly my drinking whiskies rather than savouring ones, and add a single measure of each to a spare bottle I had knocking around.

I thought I would keep adding to it until the bottle is full, sampling along the way of course, and see what interesting concoction comes from it. I’m not expecting it to be particularly good if I’m honest, but it should be interesting to pull out at a party.

So far I have a blend of the following single malts:

  1. Cardhu 12 year old
  2. Clynelish 14 year old
  3. Dalmore 12 Year Old
  4. Edradour 10 year old
  5. Edradour 13 year old Natural Cask Strength
  6. Jura Superstition
  7. Jura Diurachs’ Own
  8. Mackmyra The 1st Edition
  9. St George’s Chapter 11
  10. Talisker Storm
  11. Tomintoul 12 Year Old Oloroso Sherry Cask Finish

I have yet to try it but I will be sure to give a review soon when I do.
