Interesting story. I am a lover of fine liquors. It all started when I turned 21. You see all my parents typically had around our house was wines and beers. And perhaps unbeknownst to them, I would sneak a sip here and there (cut me some slack, I was young and foolish then:)). Then shortly after I turned 21, I bought my first liquor. And I am glad I did. It literally opened up a new world of taste, etc. I never knew before. And I only enjoy in moderation–and recommend everyone who reads or responds to my post to do the same.
Anyways, something has always perplexed me: why are whiskeys typically “blended”? Scotch is blended. American whiskey is blended. And so forth. Some things, like gin, for example, are never blended to the best of my knowledge. What does “blending” accomplish?
Thank you in advance to all who reply:)
