Ashrafieh wine shop and bar Les Caves de Taillevent sought to demystify the ancient spirit with a scotch tasting class. Whisky is the most consumed spirit in Lebanon, and scotch dominates the market in terms of volume.Single malt refers to whisky made entirely of malted barley, produced at a single distillery. The vast majority of production goes into blends, where it is mixed with other scotches and cheaply produced grain whisky to create a more affordable and consistent product. Well-known brands, such as Johnnie Walker, are blends, and contain up to 70 percent grain whisky. Single malts, perhaps more than any other type of spirit, vary widely in taste. Choueiry explained that where Lowland malts tend to be floral and light, Speyside scotches are generally more sweet and fruity.
