I don't know whether it is a component in this single blend, but I recently read that the Loch Lomond's 100% malted barley grain whisky is taken off the still at only 85% abv (vs. the customary 94% abv for their other grain whisky). The newish Loch Lomond range includes a couple of blends and a single grain. It would be interesting to know how much of this 100% malt grain whisky is in those bottlings.
I think the enthusiast market might be receptive to an aged bottling of this 100% malted barley grain whisky. I am working my way through a bottle of Nikka Coffey Grain and have been enjoying it. I don't plan on joining the Haig Club any time soon, though.
@Carlton Just to give you an answer: I do not know. The 94% is very close to the maximum you can get out of any distillation. An ethanol water mixture is an azeotrope and can't not distilled to 100%. The 94% is - if I remember right - the legally allowed maximum.Distilling lower will help to get more maltiness into the whisky.
