Grain Scotch Whisky, distinct from its Single Malt counterpart, is an elegant and versatile spirit deeply rooted in Scotland's distilling heritage. Typically made from wheat or corn, grain whisky is known for its lighter, smoother profile, making it a favorite base for blended Scotch whiskies. Distilled in continuous column stills, this process allows for a higher alcohol purity and a more delicate flavor profile. Grain Scotch Whisky can range from sweet and light with vanilla and floral notes to richer, deeper tones when matured in specific casks, offering a diverse tasting experience that caters to a variety of palates.
