Single grain whisky is a mixture of grain whisky from casks of the same distillery. Grain whisky can be made from different grains, and is distilled in continuous stills. The whisky for single grain bottlings has often been matured for decades in oak barrels, what has given it its flavor.
After an eventful history that began in the early 19th century, the Cambus Distillery closed in 1993. Still, quite a few independent bottlings of this grain whisky have appeared in recent years. Here's one from Elixir Distillers: 29 years old, 52% ABV.
It doesn't happen often that we select a grain whisky for the Archives. We didn't have to think long about this one. The active cask created a dark and rich whisky which will appeal to grain- and malt whisky fans alike.
The Vintage Malt Whisky Co not only bottles single malt whisky, but also single grain. In their series The Cooper's Choice, this 28 year old Cameronbridge single grain whisky appeared in an edition of 288 bottles and at a strength of 48.5%.
In 1852 Carsebridge starts distilling grain whisky, in 1983 the distillery closes. Carsebridge itself did not release any bottlings and relatively few independent bottlings are known. So this is quite a special bottling! 35 years old and at 48.9%.
The Clonakilty Distillery not only produces single pot still whiskey, but also grain whisky. They use this for their own blends, but also for single grain bottlings like this. Finished in burgundy casks, which is quite special for a single grain whisky.
If you want to try an Irish single grain whiskey, one that is aged on bourbon, and finished on sherry and then at a reasonable price: here is the Glendalough Double Barrel. Light, pleasant to drink, but also complex. Something different!
Dewar is a well-known name in the world of whisky, just think of Dewar's blended scotch whisky. John Dewar & Sons releases here a 20-year-old single grain whisky from an unknown distillery, matured in bourbon and sherry casks. For a great price. (40%)
Dutch distillery Horstman makes various drinks, including grain whisky. The Horstman 2014 is distilled from two types of malt (50% barley and 50% wheat) and matured in a port cask. This results in a complex palette with a striking note of toasted bread.
An example of how good a single grain whisky can be: a complex, balanced profile in which the 'wood' is perfectly integrated. This Invergordon got 43 years from bottler Whiskey-Doris to mature on bourbon. With a top result!
In its 80 years of existence, Invergordon became one of the best known grain whisky distilleries. Their single grain whisky, which is only available through third-party bottlings, scores well on average. This edition matured for 30 years on bourbon. 42.5%
Although 24 years is not that old for a single grain whisky, this Invergordon from bottler The Whisky Cellar is surprisingly mature and intense. Sweet, creamy and complex are just some of the keywords that pop up when tasting. Matured in a bourbon cask.
Has nothing to do with coffee, Coffey is the type of still with which this Japanese blended grain whisky is made. That resulted in a fruity, light, pleasantly drinkable dram, a whisky for those long summer evenings. Bottled at 45%.
It is closed for about 10 years now, the Port Dundas grain whisky distillery. But still there are frequently bottlings of this Lowlands grain. Like this 23-year-old bottling from Claxton's. Aged on bourbon, bottled at 55.5%.
There are actually no bottlings from the Stratchclyde Distillery itself, so we are dependent on what independent bottlers release if we want to enjoy this single grain whisky. Like this 26-year-old Strathclyde from Claxton's. Take your chance!
They also make single grain whisky in Ireland. The Teeling Whiskey Company already has about twenty single grain bottlings to its name. This one is from 2020. It matured in Cabernet Sauvignon wine casks and is bottled at 46%. Not chill-filtered or colored
