Single malt whisky is a whisky made at one particular distillery from a mash that uses only malted grain, ordinarily barley.
Single malts are typically associated with single malt Scotch, though they are also produced in various other countries. Under Scotch Whisky Regulations, a "Single Malt Scotch Whisky" must be made exclusively from malted barley (although the addition of E150A caramel colouring is allowed), must be distilled using pot stills at a single distillery, and must be aged for at least three years in oak casks of a capacity not exceeding 700 litres (150 imperial gallons; 180 US gallons). While the Scotch model is usually copied internationally, these constraints may not apply to whisky marketed as single malt that is produced elsewhere. For example, there is no definition of the term single with relation to whisky in the law of the United States, and some American whiskey advertised as single malt whisky is produced from malted rye rather than malted barley.
A somewhat mysterious single malt here from Douglas Laing's Provenance series! This one was distilled at "Probably Orkney's Finest Distillery" - there's only two Orkney distilleries, so you might be able to figure out which one it is... Anyway, this is a
The Whistler P.X. I Love You Single Malt is a fantastic example of the decadence of the Pedro Ximénez sherry and the influence this fortified wine’s casks can have on excellent single malt Irish whiskey. Finished for at least 9 months in PX casks.
Behold, the second release from The Lakes Distillery's Whiskymaker's Reserve series! The single malt has been matured in a combo of Pedro Ximénez, red wine and bourbon casks, whereas the first Whiskymaker's release was only matured in red wine and Pedro X
A 1999 vintage Glen Spey single malt Scotch whisky, matured in a refill hogshead from January 1999 to February 2015. It was then bottled as part of the excellent Old Particular range by Douglas Laing, with 224 bottles produced.
Well, how do you do, Tamdhu? This is an Old Particular bottling of Tamdhu single malt Scotch whisky, matured in but a single refill hogshead for 16 years. It was distilled in June 1998 and bottled by Douglas Laing in August 2014 at 48.4% ABV. Just 291 bot
Tasting notes: On the nose sherry sweetness mingles with aromas of heather honey and apple blossom. On the palate its complexity shows itself: at first sweet and creamy, then soft bourbon notes begin to shine through. Hints of oak and vanillin are prese
We're always eager to get our hands on more Auchroisk for you lovely lot - so here's another smashing bottling from Douglas Laing's Old Particular range, featuring 15 year old Auchroisk single malt! It was distilled in December 2001 and aged in a single c
Released in January 2016, this is a Douglas Laing Old Particular bottling of Glengoyne single malt, matured in a single refill hogshead from December 1996 to August 2015.
It's the second release in Bowmore's Vault Edition series! Following on from the first expression, this bottling has been titled Peat Smoke, and rather appropriately, it showcases the whisky's peaty profile. If smoky single malt is your thing, then this o
From a Gaelic word meaning "life", this robust single malt comes from one of Scotland's oldest distilleries, located in the southern Highlands. Renowned for its traditional fruity and flowery style, this distillery once in a while also makes a heavily pea
The whisky from the only distillery in the coastal town of Fort William, with a view of the highest Scottish mountain from which it takes its name, is always very sought after. Its malty character, medium body and fresh notes of oranges are quite unmistak
When Bunnahabhain occasionally makes a peated whisky, there are no compromises... and it’s a really smoky one. A huge difference in style compared to their standard fruity and unpeated distillate, it’s unmistakeably Islay from the first whiff.
An exciting new release stemming from our long experience with maturation. This bottling is a vatting of five casks with a finish in fist fill bourbon, and two in virgin American oak.
We definitely love the influence of sherry cask maturation on peated malts, as it produces a unique style. For this first relase, we chose a subtle approach, though: an Oloroso kiss that is not immediately noticeable at the nose with a winey coat, but jus
The delicate whisky from this distillery in Speyside, usually very light in body and known for its flowery and honeyed touch, has received an extra layer of fruity richness thanks to a finish of twenty months in second fill sherry casks.
It is quite customary to see Glenrothes aged in Oloroso sherry casks, which give it a typically dry profile. Aiming at a softer and fruitier style, we chose to transfer these two casks into a Pedro Ximenez barrel (albeit a second fill one) for 28 months.
A full bodied, richly fruity and intense Speyside malt fully matured in Oloroso sherry casks, traditionally the best choice for enhancing the robust style of distillate from this area of Scotland. A special edition from a vatting of three butts with compl
A rather lovely Irish single malt here from Fercullen over in County Wicklow. This one spent its entire 14 years of ageing exclusively in bourbon barrels. As such, there's lots of rich nuts and creamy, tropical deliciousness to be found here.
