Bourbon vs Sherry

by Master of Malt     15. August 2011 13:25
Sherry vs Bourbon

The two most popular choices for whisky ageing - sherry casks and bourbon barrels - offer a totally different style of single malt and here at Master of Malt, we love both in equal measure. Just like with children, it’s wrong to have a favourite (unless one child is a maths-whiz-head-boy-sports-star-type, and the other is one of those miserable kids that dyes his hair black and combs it over his face, whilst complaining constantly about how “unfair it all is”).

World's Oldest Whisky

There are few moments like this in history; moments which involve something daring and utterly extraordinary. Moments that no one will ever forget.

For us, the Chaps at Master of Malt, this might just be our biggest moment yet…

We’ve discovered the world’s oldest whisky. What’s more, it’s more than a century old. This, ladies and gentleman is an absolutely spectacular achievement, and one that will hopefully go down in the annals of whisky history.

Who loves Scotch Whisky the most?

by Michael Orson     14. September 2010 14:06
Navigating the sea of whisky

The Scotch whisky export figures for 2009 are in, and they make for very interesting viewing!

 

In the ultimate battle for supremacy, the pole position didn’t go to the UK, the Japanese or even the Americans. No, 2009’s greatest Scotch importers were the French. On average, each adult imported 2.45 litres of Scotch whisky… that’s 3 ½ bottles a year, which isn’t bad going for a country that makes some of the world’s very best brandies. More...
