Scotch

Brands ~ Guides ~ Cocktails
Scotch is a malt or grain whisky made in Scotland in a manner specified by law. It is produced in five distinct categories:
  • Single malt. Produced from only water and malted barley at a single distillery by batch distillation in pot stills. A single malt is usually a blend of several different batches, some younger and some older.
  • Single grain. Distilled at a single distillery but, in addition to water and malted barley, may include whole grains of other malted or unmalted cereals.
  • Blended malt ("vatted malt" or "pure malt"). A blend of two or more single malt Scotch whiskies from different distilleries.
  • Blended grain. A blend of two or more single grain Scotch whiskies from different distilleries.
  • Blended Scotch. A blend of one or more single malt Scotch whiskies with one or more single grain Scotch whiskies.
All Scotch whisky must be aged in wooden casks for at least three years. Any age statement on a bottle must reflect the age of the youngest whisky. Aging mellows the alcohol and gives Scotch its distinctive flavor. The longer it’s aged, the smoother — and pricier — it gets.

Scotch is produced in five regions of Scotland, each with its own character: The Highlands, Lowland, Islay, Speyside and Campbeltown. Islay (pronounced EYE la) produces distinctively peaty, smoky flavored Scotch, as opposed to the other four regions, which are almost uniformly smooth and less distinguishable.

In Good Spirits:
A man drinks a shot of whiskey every night before bed, but wife wants him to quit. She gets two shot glasses, filling one with water and the other with whiskey. After handing them to him, she pulls a worm from his bait box and says "I want you to see this. " She puts a worm in the water it, and it swims around. She puts a worm in the whiskey, and the worm dies immediately. "What do you have to say now?" He responds: "If I drink whiskey, I won't get worms!"
