Unique Whiskey Blends that Defy Tradition

Posted by on Jul 22, 2016


Mixed whiskey blends are a little controversial, particularly in the US, because there are very strong and vocal fan bases for a bourbon or rye.  There is precedent for it — Canadians have been doing it for years, but in the US, it’s a little different.  And there are some who would not even give it a chance, but the description below of a specific whiskey has us salivating:

Blends of whiskeys of different types and different ages are rare enough. But perhaps the most special blended whiskey of all is one that incorporates different geographies. Ichiro’s Malt & Grain, made by Japan’s Ichiro Akuto of Chichibu distillery, has created a “worldwide whisky”—a veritable United Nations of whiskey made with an unheard-of blend from the countries Akuto calls “the big five”: the U.S. (bourbon, specifically), Canada, Scotland, Ireland, and, of course, Japan. It’s silky and elegant, with warming, almond-like tones and a honey-pepper finish.
