What is a Blended/Pure Malt (Vatted) Scotch Whisky?
A Vatted Malt will contain a number of malt whiskies that have been skilfully blended together or "married," to create a consistent whisky with its own distinct, identifiable character. Such a malt can also consist entirely of malt whiskies of various ages from the same distillery. However, vatted malts will never contain any grain whisky. A fairly uncommon type of whisky, it is often well suited to those who prefer their whisky to be less challenging, due to the fact that the blender's skill will more often than not produce an unvarying malt with highly definable traits.
