Highlands, Scotland- Fruity and pungent nose, mixed with sea breeze aromas and notes of crushed grapes, orange zest and hints of smoke; complex. Soft malt on the palate, followed by wave upon wave of delicate yet rich fruit notes. Finishes with hints of sweetened coffee and oak.
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.
