What are the grains invlolved in a Vatted Grain Whisky? Surely, it does not have any malted barley (I'd assume that would make it a blend). Does it have unmalted barley? Does this mean that all the whiskies invoolved where made in continous stills and not copper pot stills? Any help would be great.
Our bottlings of Hedonism are made from a combination of eight to 15 casks of grain whisky from distilleries such as Cameron Bridge, one of the oldest continuously operating distilleries in Scotland, and Cambus. Most whisky in Hedonism is over 20 years-old and has all been aged in first-fill American Oak casks. The ageing yields a very special whisky that is full and round with richly textured flavours of vanilla and toffee.
I have tried this before and I found it very interesting stuff.
... which has been produced at a distillery in Scotland from water and malted barley (to which only whole grains of other cereals may be added)
I believe in the case of grain whisky that only a small proportion of malted barley is used, and that is to provide the enzyme that converts the starch in the rest of the grain to fermentable sugar.
I think in Cooley's continuous still that maize is the grain used but that's not a requirement. Whatever is cheap, I presume.
