Why does cheap whiskey taste so terrible

Blended whiskey

Artful mixing

Scotch whiskeys are some of the best blended whiskey in the world, exported and sold across America and especially popular in Asia.

Historically, whiskey was forced into popularity in the 1860s by Scotsman Andrew Usher, who thought that most single pot still or single malt whiskey would smell too strong for everyday consumption.

By combining malt and grain whiskeys in different proportions, the resulting taste is much more subtle and pleasant for use in a variety of different settings.

The most common blended whiskeys are single malt and einkorn and there are no real guidelines for the best percentages - it just depends on your own preferences.

Because blended whiskey can often come out more innovative than the standard single malts, they are most enjoyed all over the world, where people are more likely to become traditions and try something new.

Try the 793 Monkey Shoulder as a surefire introduction to the discovery of blended whiskey, made to taste distinct and to remain flavorful, a blend that is not overwhelming.

It works well with the mixer or straight, Monkey Shoulder’s oak tannins balance out its heady smell and proves to be a good example of what makes mixes so popular.
