Palate: Salted peanuts, stone fruit, brownie mix, orange rind, charred pineapple, custard, and Frazzles. Glenlivet: This brand is known for its light and fruity flavor profile, which includes hints of apple, pear, and vanilla. Scotch ranges in taste based on where in Scotland it is from and what techniques were used in the distillery’s process. Each distillery puts their own unique spin on their single malt, so you’ll find different taste profiles even within a distillery’s product lineup. Something aged for 8 years, for example, will be much lighter and less complex is flavor than an 18-year single malt. I could make a list of all the possible flavors, but you would be reading this all day.

There are no legal definitions for double malts, so no aging requirements are stated. However, since it is made from a blend of single malts, the blended Scotch whisky is aged for at least three years. Main Ingredients Next, the malt is mixed with water to create a mash, before the mixture is fermented with yeast. The fourth step of the process is the distillation, which is traditionally done twice for Scotch whisky and thrice for Irish whiskey. Whether you're a seasoned connoisseur or an eager novice, the allure of a good Scotch whisky can’t be ignored. In fact, in the battle of geographical bests, few whiskies compare; Scotland’s single malts and brilliant blends make up some of the best whiskies in the world. Macallan: This brand is known for its rich and complex flavor profile, which includes hints of dried fruit, spice, and chocolate. A light, fruit-forward spirit owes its character to some famously tall stills, married in more recent times to the enlightened cask maturation policy of Dr Bill Lumsden and the financial clout of its owner since 2004, French luxury goods monolith LVMH.The wonderful world of scotch is so full of nuance and mystery. Each bottle contains a world of flavor, but the label contains a somewhat more confusing world of regulations, definitions, and specifications. Let’s look more in-depth at the specifics behind one of the world’s most common bottle designations and its twin sister that no one can really define: single malt scotch vs double malt scotch. Main Differences between Single Malt vs Double Malt: When people ask me for recommendations on “the best whisky”, or best whisky brand, I take a number of things into consideration. Particularly, the kind of flavours they’re drawn to, and what they’re buying this particular bottle for. If they’re fairly new to whisky, I might steer them towards Johnnie Walker’s easy-drink blends, if they’re a peated whisky lover looking to try something new, it might be a venture towards Octomore, and so on (and so on). Second Distillation: The low-wine transfers to the second distillation in spirit stills and heated again to convert the alcohol to gas. Here the master distiller must make a precise decision on when to cut the second distillation into the head (first cut), heart (middle cut) and tail (end cut). The heart is the purest distillate and the only one used to make scotch. In some cases, distilleries use a tiny heart, only 16% of the entire distillate, to make extra pure scotch. Step 3: Maturation, Blending, and Bottling

Since a lone distillery should make it, sometimes, the distillery finds it hard to keep up with the demand. Single Malt can only be made with barley and water, whereas Double Malt includes other grains other than barley. Creating the Mash: Malted barley is ground down and mixed with warm water to create wash. The natural enzymes in barley begin converting sugars into alcohol. This process creates wort. Step 2: Fermenting and Distilling The Highlands– northern-most region of Scotland and by far the largest. Flavors vary, so they can be hard to pin down. You’ll find a range from light, fruity, and sweet, too salty, dark, and rich. Examples: Dalmore, Ardmore, and Oban


Blending: Before the scotch is bottled, the master distiller will taste each barrel to determine which flavors should be blended together to create the most interesting, pure, and consistent scotch. Once these blends are created, the result is bottled and shipped for us to enjoy! What is Single Malt? The Glenlivet distillery in Moray, Scotland has been producing whisky since 1824, so it’s safe to say that the distillery knows what it’s doing. And its 12 Year is widely known as one of the most popular whisky in the world. Despite being produced in Scotland, it remains known as the best-selling malt whisky in the United States. Scotch whisky is produced widely across the country, but it tends to be grouped into six regions; Highlands, Speyside, Lowlands, Campbeltown, Islay and Islands. Much like wine production, each respective location makes a noticeable difference to how each liquid tastes, looks and smells, too. Double malt is a blend of two single malts from two distilleries. The blending was pioneered in Scotland in the 1860s, and by mixing malt whiskies, they created lighter and sweeter whiskies.
