    most sinlge grains after twelve years (in the cask- not after twelve years off the shelf!) are normally palatable, for a proper smoked Scottish there are so many it is up the individual taste.

    Ask him what he's looking for in a whisky.

    good luck!

    Waitrose have a good selection Daz, if there is one near Ilkeston? Old Pulteney is almost drinkable and I can't stand the stuff. Tastes of "Northern Scottish sea breezes" according to the bottle - I just think it tastes like whisky.

    If you had joined the Gentlemen Fell Runners expedition in 2006, you would have benefited from the Whisky tasting competition - single malts .

    Your Grandad is not an old bugger, he is a grandad of taste and refinement. I am sure this will be re-iterated by Wheeze and other malt lovers on the site

    Discerning choice is the preserve COG's (Crusty Old Codgers). So cut us some slack, remind him he means a single MALT whisky and tip some Highland Park down his neck...that'll shut him up.

    Single malt whisky is a 100% malted barley whisky from one distillery.

    Single grain whisky is a grain whisky from one distillery (it does not have to be made from a single type of grain).

    Vatted or blended malt whisky is a malt whisky created by mixing single malt whiskies from more than one distillery.

    Blended grain whisky is a whisky created by mixing grain whiskies from more than one distillery.

    Blended Scotch whisky is a mixture of single malt whisky and grain whisky, usually from multiple distilleries.
    Now you know and can enjoy whisky.

    Note: Scotch whisky should NEVER be confused with whiskey from other countries.
