Lowlands, Scotland- Deep gold hue and complex. Brown sugar, orange, plum and raisin scents usher fruit, syrup and hazelnut with hints of cinnamon and lemon. A butterscotch sweetness adds to the overall complexity.
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.
