I see in my part of the world, there are Cadenhead's "Blended" Highland, Lowland, and Campbeltown bottles. Can anyone tell me if these are blended single malts or malts blended with grains? Any try them? Are they any good?

I found out these bottles are Cadenhead's Blended Pure Malts. Has anyone tried the Campbeltown, Lowland, or Highland bottlings of this brand? If so, what do you think? Eh, or ah?

I've got the Lowland bottling. It's not the greatest thing I've ever had. At 50 ABV it's a little harsh.

Seems as though the Cadenhead's blends are not that interesting to most folks here. I passed on the purchase even though I was especially curious about the Campbeltown blend

I don't know if it's the same line you're asking about, @rigmorole, but the Cadenhead's Classic Islay Pure Malt is great & great value. 50% ABV. Said (by Serge) to be young Lagavulin. Clean and zippy. Positively swimming with unfiltered goodness.


I found mine in Fairley's House of Wines, Coleraine, Northern Ireland. Top shelf (like, out of the way—not showcased) and quite dusty.
