Bar Fight! Scotch – The Macallan vs. The Balvenie

The Whiskey Exchange

Welcome to Bar Fight, the weekly competition where two beers, liquors or mixed drinks fight it out and only one can come out on top…before hitting the bottom of our stomachs. In this week’s match-up, it’s scotch against scotch.

When you order a single malt scotch you are telling everyone that you contain some measure of sophistication. Those of us who sip upon these complex whiskeys are willing to spend our hard earned money on an expensive drink because of the encompassing experience it represents. Regardless of whether you order it neat, or on the rocks, the enjoyment a good scotch can give your taste buds is one of the jewels of life.

In today’s match up we pit two of the best selling scotches up against each other to see which one really has the stones under the kilt.

The Macallan 10 Year Sherry Cask

This tender, amber colored, Scottish, beauty is a treat on the rocks or neat. Subtle notes of sweet fruit fill your nose as you take a sip, leading to a fine, soothing, flavor of woody oak, finishing slightly bitter-sweet. Distilled since 1824 The Macallan is sure to please even the most experienced scotch drinker.

The Balvenie Doublewood 12 Year

One of the most beloved single malts, Balvenie Doublewood 12 Year is as pleasurable to drink as it is to say. Like a warm blanket this malty Speyside comforts your taste buds with hints of sweet oak and bitter sherry. Founded by William Grant & Sons (who also produce Glenfiddich) Balvenie has been a shining example of Scotch whiskey excellence since 1892.
