Scotch whisky is whisky that is produced in Scotland with grains that have been grown in Scotland. Blended scotch whisky is made by mixing single malt scotch whisky with grain scotch whisky. In general, whisky are dark distilled spirit that are made from fermentation of grains like barley, corn (maize), wheat, rice or rye. The grains could be malted or un-malted. The process of making whisky from malted grains is more less the same like the one of un-malted grains only that you skip the first two steps in the case of un-malted grains. Whisky are mostly classified with the country they are produced in like Japanese whisky, the grains used in production like rye whisky and the process of production utilized like single malt whisky. The following are the categories of whisky depending on the stated factors.
Blended scotch whisky are among the most popular whisky in the world and they also among the most expensive whisky in Kenya. The process of making these whiskies includes malting, drying, mashing, fermentation, distillation and maturation.
Malting & Drying – The grains are fooled to germinate by soaking them in water for two or three days. They are then dried over peat fire. This gives scotch whisky have smoky flavours and taste. This process can be skipped in the case of grain whisky but for single malt whisky it is a must because they use malted barley for production.
Mashing – The grains are then crushed into gilt and then added hot water that is around 60 degrees centigrade. This makes the mixture to froth and bubble as the grains releases their sugars making a sugary syrup. The process takes around 4 hours.
Fermentation – After cooling, yeast is added to the sugary syrup to initiate fermentation. This converts the sugars to alcohol. The end product is a beer like product low alcohol percentage.
Distillation – The process is different for both grain whisky and single malt whisky. For single malt scotch whisky they use double distillation over copper pot still. To maintain the quality of the alcohol is the distillate is subdivided into three pieces. The first one is called the head, the middle one is called the heart while the last one is called the tail. Only the heart is used for the second distillation with the head and the tail being recycled in the process. This is because they contain unwanted content like methanol. For grain whisky they use fractional distillation to separate the content of the alcoholic liquid. The process is only carried out once via a column still that has two columns called the analyzer and the rectifier. The liquid is heated and the vapour is called through the columns until the alcohol condenses at the required strength. The end product of distillation is vodka clear like liquid that has a high alcohol content of around 70% alcohol percentage.
Maturation – To mature to real whisky, the clear liquid is aged in wooden cask made from American oak. These are casks that were previously used to age bourbon whisky, sherry or Tennessee whisky. The whisky gets flavours from this casks and also aging making them turn their color to dark and also improve their taste.
Blended scotch whisky are made by mixing around 2/3 of grain whisky whisky with around 1/3 of single malt whisky. The advantage of doing so is to make the price of blended scotch whisky quite affordable. After mixing, the whisky is then aged for around 4 or 5 years to blend into one quality whisky. When you want to get quality whisky, you mix old whiskies. For example, a bottle of Chivas 18 years old means is a blend of scotch grain whisky and malt scotch whisky that are 25 years of age. Most of the blended scotch whisky are made by blending whiskies from around 40 different distilleries. They most interesting thing is that scotch whisky brands are in families. Like Chivas, Johnnie Walker and many more.
