Top 10 Blended Scotch

The Dimple Pinch

Price: $45 for 750 ml.
ABV: 43%

Haig, Scotland's oldest surviving Scotch whisky distiller, produces this 15-year-old blended whisky. First released in 1893, it is known as much for its taste as it is for its distinguished bottle. The famous dimpled container was the first three-sided bottle to be registered as a trademark in the United States. The nose boasts distinct cherry aromas, while the palate offers a viscosity and gentleness derived from the more than 30 malt and grain whiskies used in the blend. It finishes surprisingly dry with a hint of spice, cherries and earthiness. It's a smart whisky for the novice or connoisseur.
