Wizards of Whisky World’s Best Other Grain Whiskies 2015

 That Boutique-y Whisky Company Scotch Blend Batch One

A blended Scotch whisky has been chosen as the best ‘other grains’ whisky in The Wizards of Whisky World Whisky Awards.

The blend, called Scotch Blend Batch One and bottled at 50.3% by online drinks retailer Master of Malt as part of its Boutique-y Whisky range, beat ryes, bourbons pot still whiskeys and mixed grain whiskies from across the world to take the award.

The whisky was one of only handful of blends competing in the wizards, but its victory is a timely reminder – should open be needed – that Scotland can still make world beating whisky, even in a category often considered inferior to other whisky styles.

Other whiskies that scored well in The Wizards include Balcones Baby Blue, Powers John’s Lane, Balcones Brimstone, and Millstone 100. Rye.

In all 30 ‘other grain’ whiskies achieved a gold or silver medal in the Awards.
