Kininvie Blended Scotch Whisky KVSB003


Blended Scotch Whisky


50CL | Non-Chill Filtered | ABV 48.2%

The third release from Kininvie Works.

Objective: To create a blended Scotch whisky from a single distillery.
Experiment: Blended Scotch is usually made from grain and malted barley whiskies sourced from different distilleries. We produced the constituent whiskies at our distillery to have exclusive control of all the variables in the blended spirit.

Observations: Typical Scotch blends have high grain/low malt content. In this blend we used a high proportion of malt for fruity, light higher alcohols that act as solic base, whilst the grain give the depth and spice. We weren’t expecting to source flavour in this way, contrary to what we know about blending.

For this experiment, we decided to make a blend using two parcels of whisky that had been produced at the Kininvie Works distillery. A Grain Whisky and a Single Malt Whisky. The grain spirit contained an inclusion of rye, which typically has higher levels of protein compared to standard malted barley. During fermentation these nutrients support yeast metabolism and in turn produce higher levels of acids and subsequently esters. Afterwards these compounds develop into the rich, toffee flavours we can now taste. The resultant mature spirit is a spicy, deep flavoured grain spirit with the characteristics of a malt, which balances well with the light, floral spirit that traditional Kininvie malt brings.
