Was enjoying my christmas gift pack of whisky and wondering to myself, being something of a whisky novice, if given a glass of whisky can anyone actually tell whether it’s single malt of blended?

    a single malt has a more distinct flavour. someone who drinks a lot of whisky can. My dad loves single malt, but can’t stand blended.

  2. It’s a common misconception that blends are always inferior to single malts. Some single malts are undrinkable, and there are some fine blends where the malts have been carefully chosen.

    I agree with both comments. There is usually a distinct difference between the two, but that doesnt mean one is always better than the other. Single malts tend to be more disticntive, often tastier and fuller,even smokier, kind of like real ales when compared with john smiths or worthingtons. Blended whisky’s tend to be much more similar and consistent in flavour to each other, although better quality is easily noticed. Buy me loads of glasses of various whisky’s and we can experiment…..
