Single malt whisky - tasting notes

* Grain whisky reviews

Grain whisky refers to whisky made from a mix of grains other than malted barley, usually maize, wheat, rye… Keep in mind that Scotch grain whisky must also contain some malted barley. Grain whisky is typically distilled in a continuous column still, which results in a higher percentage of alcohol content, but a less flavourful spirit.
