Grain Whisky

The hidden gem in whisky's lexicon.  Rather harshly, grain whisky is seen as all filler and no thriller.  Grain whisky can be youthful and spirity, due in part to being produced in a continual process (column/coffey stills run continuously, unlike a pot still and produce a higher concentration and more volume of spirit) this is ideal in producing a cheap whisky ideal for blending and producing bulk blended whisky.  If grain whisky has the opportunity to be aged in good quality oak or sherry casks then the results can be magnificent.  Notes of rich caramel, spice, toffee, honey, demerara sugar and cream can all be found in aged grain whisky.  Lighter in style than malt whiskies (corn is most often used rather than barley) there are some stunning value whiskies in this category, with older whiskies a fraction of the price of the more illustrious malts!
