We often overlook blended whisky, but they do not deserve the position which they are regarded in. Blended traditionally meant that it was composed of multiple sub-par batches and thrown together for something potable. Today, companies such as Compass Box are taking pride in the craft of blending and creating beautiful, balanced and complex whiskies. Extracting only the best qualities, and producing a very desirable product. Much like the most sought after and prized wines; Opus One, Screaming Eagle, Scarecrow, Hundred Acre, etc…they’re all blends. Composed of only the best grapes sourced from the best vineyards, and produced into the best juice.
The new class of blended whiskies follow this mentality, and the product shines. Unlike the cult wines, many of these whiskies come with working wage price tags. Amazing value. Big fan.

whiskyblender: “In one hand you have two Scottish friends with a passion for whisky and in the other you have, well, the internet. Now put those hands together and suddenly it’s possible for anyone to design and drink their very own custom bottle of Scotch….
To explain how it all works is simple, there’s a virtual blending lab offering seven different whisky options to choose from – each with a cute name and appetising description to help – and you mix however you wish in order to create a new, unique blend the like of which the world hasn’t yet had the honour of tasting… except YOU!
All that’s left is to come up with a great name and DOOSH!!! there it is. Whether you’re treating yourself or someone special; be it a wedding gift, birthday present or because they saved your life… this is the greatest whisky-related, custom-made piece of personalised wizardry on the planet (or pretty close anyway).
What’s more… the site just relaunched and now works super sweet on the iPad as well as offering themed gift vouchers, helpful premade blends to get you started and each blend has it’s own profile page with Facebook commenting build in.
