Scotch Whisky

Scotch whisky, often simply called Scotch, is malt whisky or grain whisky made in Scotland. Scotch whisky must be made in a manner specified by law.

 

All Scotch whisky was originally made from malted barley. Commercial distilleries began introducing whisky made from wheat and rye in the late 18th century. Scotch whisky is divided into five distinct categories: single malt Scotch whisky, single grain Scotch whisky, blended malt Scotch whisky (formerly called "vatted malt" or "pure malt"), blended grain Scotch whisky, and blended Scotch whisky. 

 

All Scotch whisky must be aged in oak barrels for at least three years. Any age statement on a bottle of Scotch whisky, expressed in numerical form, must reflect the age of the youngest whisky used to produce that product. A whisky with an age statement is known as guaranteed-age whisky.

 

The first written mention of Scotch whisky is in the Exchequer Rolls of Scotland, 1495. A friar named John Cor was the distiller at Lindores Abbey in the Kingdom of Fife. 

 

Many Scotch whisky drinkers will refer to a unit for drinking as a dram.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

 

The nose is quite rich and clean. There is a good degree of tasted cereal notes, malt extract and juicy barley. There are notes of golden syrup and rum with spice and white pepper. A delicate smoke rises with elegance. The palate is quite full and rich with a solid sweetness. The cereal notes are juicy and sugary with manuka honey and notes of wafting smoke and heather roots. The finish is quite spicy and full of barley.

Glenfarclas 12yr Highland Single Malt

Colour: Vibrant amber-gold.

 

Nose: Fresh and beautifully light, sherried fruit combined with a tempting spicy sweetness and a hint of sappy oak. 

 

Flavour: Full bodied, delightful sherried fruit, with oak, a hint of peat and delicious sweet sensations. 

 

Finish: Long and flavoursome, with a lingering spiceness. 

 

Comment: An excellent introduction to the distillery style. Glenfarclas means Glen of the Green Grassland, and the freshness on the nose reminds me of grassland in spring. So, for me, this is the ‘farclas’ aroma. In 2006 this was named the ‘Best Sherried Whisky’ in the Single Malt World Cup. More recently Glenfarclas 12 Years Old won Gold at the Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival in 2007 and again in 2008.

Glengoyne 10 Year Old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Fresh green apples, toffee and a hint of nuttiness. This is the taste of distilling slower than anyone else in Scotland, of barley we dry by air – never peat – and of oak casks we select by hand. Just as we’ve always done.

Lagavulin 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky, Cask-strength, Islay

The 15th incarnation of Lagavulin 12 in the Diageo Special Releases, a testament to the sheer likeability and complexity of this whisky. Its relative youth compared to the phenomenally popular Lagavulin 16 can be misleading: this Islay whisky is rewardingly diverse, with smoke and fruit melded into minerality. Expect swirling layers of smoke, liquorice, charred meats and green tones of apple and sweet pear. This cask-strength whisky has been created from refill American Oak hogsheads, each at least 12 years old.

Lagavulin 16yr Islay Single Malt

 An old classic, but how do the newest bottlings fare? Rich, chewy, slightly oily texture. Deep peat, thick smoke, iodine, brine, charcoal, seaweed, tea (Earl Grey, Lapsang Souchong), and the aromas of a summer barbeque. Vanilla and light caramel soften the intensity, while subtle citrus fruit teases. Powerful, yet polished and seamless. After all these years, this whisky is still one of the finest standard-issue peaty, smoky whiskies!
