The blended whisky category has been in existence since the mid-19th century and remains the foundation of the industry. Blended Scotch is simply a mix of malt and grain whiskies.

A lovely old bottle of White Horse bottled over fifty years ago. We've tried a bottle of this from 1958 and believe you me, it is STUNNING. Very delicate, elegant structure (as you often get from a bottle this old); very powerful flavour (and quite peaty, given the links with Lagavulin).
A great looking bottle of White Horse's blended Scotch whisky from the 1950s - 1957, to be exact, as it says on the label. Please note that the level of liquid in this bottle is below the neck as pictured.
Another 'single blend' from Adelphi, a single cask bottling of Lochside that is made up of both grain and malt whisky from 1965, distilled at the distillery and filled into the cask together. A big hit at The Whisky Show 2012.
An interesting single cask whisky bottled at cask strength in 2011 by The Whisky Exchange. Lochside produced both grain and malt whisky from its opening in 1957 until the early 1970s and this is a 'single blend' using only whisky from the distillery. Unusually, the whisky was blended before ageing, with the mix of grain and malt maturing in the same cask for 46 years. A very rare style from this now closed distillery.
