How to distinguish the types of whisky?
There are many kinds of whisky, which can be simply divided according to raw materials: malt whisky, cereal whisky, or in a blended way: single, blended, the basic types are as follows:
Single Malt Whisky
The raw materials are only water and germinated barley, and the original wine is all the distillation products of the same distillery (pot distiller can be distilled in different batches).
Goalong Silver Club Single Malt Whisky
Flavor: Intense malt fragrance, natural fruity aromas and honey flavor
Taste: Smooth and sulky upfront and full bodied palate
Single Grain Whiskey
In addition to water and germinated barley, there are other raw grains of grain; the original wine is all distilled from the same distillery (using Coffey stills).
Goalong Single Grain Whisky
Flavor: The palate is crisp, with pineapple and lemon flavors and a hint of vanilla

Blended Malt Whisky
It is a mixture of two or more single malt whiskies and the original wine is the distillation product of two or more distilleries.
Goalong Blended Malt Whisky

Blended Grain Whiskey
It is a mixture of two or more single-grain whiskies and the original wine is the distillation product of two or more distilleries.

The single variety emphasizes more personality, while the blended variety pays more attention to balance, while the blended variety is less affected by one or two kinds of blended raw material whisky, and it is also a guarantee for the stability of yield, so it can become the main variety in the market.
