Classification of Scottish Whiskies

Regardless the brands of whiskies, the whiskies can be classified as follows:-

Single Malt Whisky
Malt whisky produced from a single distillatory. It may be blended from different batchs of whisky but still can be claimed as Single Malt Whisky as long as all blended malts are from the same distillatory.

Single Grain Whisky
Similar to single malt whisky above but they are made of grain whiskies.

Pure/Blended/Vatted Malt Whisky
They refer to the same thing – malt whiskies blended from more than one distillatory.

Pure/Blended/Vatted Grain Whisky
Grain whiskies blended from more than one distillatory.

Blended Whisky
It represents more than 90% of Socttish whiskies’ market. It is blended from grain and malt whiskies. Blended whisky is more pleasurable and smoother than malt whisky to most people, which is attributed by the mixing of grain whisky.
