Top 6 Whiskey Brands in Singapore

Whiskey Blended


Blended whiskey is a blend of one or more whiskeys, which can themselves be made from any combination of malted and unmalted grain.

Blended whiskeys are generally cheaper and more accessible than single malt or single grain whiskeys, but lack the individuality of a spirit distilled from a single base product in a single location. On the other hand, they are more malleable in terms of style, an attractive asset for distillers who need to create a consistent "house style".

Although blended whiskeys are considered less exclusive than single malts and therefore less likely to fetch high prices, some of the world's best known and most expensive whiskeys are blends. The Johnnie Walker brand demonstrates this perfectly; Its Blue Label product costs hundreds of dollars a bottle, while its cheaper Red Label is one of the most widely available whiskeys in the world.

Single Malt Whiskey

This is arguably the finest bottling of whisky, made in a single distillery from malted barley, water and yeast. The style is made in Japan, Ireland and most notably (and famously) Scotland. Indeed, Single Malt Scotch Whiskey is a coveted collector's item and is certainly one of the most coveted and revered liquids in the world, with many specimens being treasured as much as the world's finest wines.

In addition, more and more American craft producers have single malt whiskeys in their portfolio. The American Single Malt Whiskey Commission was established in 2016 and defined the category for US distilleries; As of July 2018, the commission had 100 members. At that time, however, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau had yet to officially recognize the term.
