S For Spanish Whisky

World Whisky Day is fast approaching on Saturday the 19th May 2018.

As part of the build up I’m featuring a series of blogs – both old and new – over the next month focusing on a country from each letter of the alphabet – if possible – that makes whisky.

Today is S for Spanish Whisky.

Spain is synonymous with summer holidays, glorious sunshine, golden sands, blue seas & plenty of sangria.

But I found something else on a recent trip there.

Destilerias y Crianza del Whisky S.A. – or DYC Whisky to be short.

DYC Whiskies c/oBeamSuntory

It all started back in 1958 as an alternative to the usually dearer imported whiskies and is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Beam Suntory.

I had the pleasure of picking up their standard bearer DYC Selected Blend for only 11 euro and found it stood up very well against a range of other flagship big name blends.

A 12 year old DYC Single Malt also went down very well after procuring a bottle via the Barrique store in Aachen.

When I get back down to Spain – or if anyone is down there now  and wants to bring me back a present – I’ll be checking out the entire DYC range of blends & malts.
