Big glass! Truly a generous sized hand fitting whiskey Triple Old Fashioned Glass.
Blended Scotch whisky constitutes about 90% of the whisky produced in Scotland. Blended Scotch whiskies contain both malt whisky and grain whisky. Producers combine the various malts and grain whiskies to produce a consistent brand style. Each blended Scotch contains malts and grain whiskey and it is skillfully blended by masters of the trade. Tasting each batch and fine balancing the quantities of the whiskey from different barrels is an art that produces fine high quality whiskey of widely respected taste and flavor traditional to a particular distillery and whiskey house.

When the Vikings invaded Waterford they appreciated its strategic value as a major trading port for goods and merchandise, a role it continues to play to this day. A lot of goods both dry and wet were shipped by barrel and a healthy barrel making industry developed in the Waterford area. Barrel makers or coopers as the trade was known continued their craft right up to the twentieth century before they were overtaken by modern technology.
