Speyside- A whisky hand-made from start to finish and bottled at cask strength resulting in a robust and deeply intense taste of black cherries, dried fruit, and ginger spiked with dark bitter chocolate. It has aromas of mixed spices, praline and spiced orange.
Scotch, quite simply, is whisky made and aged at least three years in Scotland. All whisky made in Scotland is Scotch, and must follow specific production regulations.
All Scotch varieties fall within two broad categories or are blends of these two: malt whisky and grain whisky. Malt whisky must be 100 percent malted barley. Grain whisky may include wheat, rye, corn or other grains.
