The Best Blended Scotch Whiskies

Care for a Sheep Dip? How about a Dimple Pinch? No, these aren't dirty jokes or double entendres. They're the names of some of the finest blended Scotch whiskies that we have tasted. Blended Scotch typically comprises a combination of single malt Scotch whiskies and grain whiskies, and are often more balanced, less expensive and easier to drink than their single malt counterparts. They are so popular worldwide that blended Scotch accounts for about 90 percent of all whisky production in Scotland. While most of our top blends combine both single malts and grain whiskies, we also feature one that is solely single malts, and another that is 100 percent grain whiskies from multiple distillers. See which of our Top 10 Blended Scotch Whiskies is your favorite.
