It is the last Vatted Malt because as of November 22, 2011, all whiskies of this type (a blending of malts from more than one distillery) must be labeled as Blended Malt Scotch Whisky.
The Compass Box Whisky site has a variety of wonderful scotch whiskeys available. http://compassbox.specialitydrinks.com/
A Google search resulted in a U.S. source for Compass Box Whisky - http://www.dandm.com/category_products_list.php?cPath=101_102&cat=scotch&subcat=Single+Grain%2C+Vatted+Malts
Maybe your favorite Scotch resource can assist you in purchasing one of their wonderful Scotch whiskies.
Slàinte mhòr agad!
Wow…what a find. The site is a UK site – The Whiskey Kitchen.
Not only does this recipe look just wonderful, it is made with scotch whisky. Now, I know there is not any bacon involved, but you could serve my previously posted appetizer and then enjoy this wonderful filet. I made some notes on conversions for those not into metric measurements (like me).
There have been wine guides for years, but I found something new – the Malt Whisky Yearbook.
Last November, the 6th edition of the book was published. Each edition is up-to-date with the most current information from over 200 distilleries.
The publication includes information on whisky shops, new bottlings and more than 200 tasting notes for single malts from distilleries in Scotland, Ireland and even Japan.
Malt Whisky Yearbook 2011 might just be the perfect gift for your scotch enthusiast.
Chef Cora has some incredible dishes as only she can and tonight was no exception. Her starter was a cocktail with an appetizer dish. Not so sure about the appetizer itself because I was so intrigued by the drink she served with it.
So here it goes…
A healthy shot of bourbon (substitute your favorite scotch) in a glass coated with a vanilla salt (easy to do – dip the glass in vanilla and then into a salt, such as used for Margaritas). Instead of a stir stick, the drink included a rasher of brown sugar coated bacon skewered on a wooden kebak type stick.
That is quite an interesting and original use of both bacon and scotch…..
Try it. Let us know what you think. BTW, she won the challenge so Food Network might have more information on the drink and appetizer dish soon.
Yes, it is true. A crate of Scotch whisky was found trapped in the ice in the Antarctic for a century.
The crate was opened last week….but, sorry, that is all that is happening. It will never pass the lips of all of those scotch lovers. The scotch is being preserved for its historical significance. You can read all about it here….
