Single malt scotch is distilled of malted barley and water  – and nothing else- at a single distillery.   In contrast, a blended whisky is the combined product of multiple distilleries. While some people prefer blends for making cocktails or sipping on the rocks, single malt scotches are savored from a snifter and prized for unique characteristics. Single malts can be smooth with a honey finish, smoky and peaty.  As with any Scotch whiskey the single malt has to be distilled in Scotland and matured in oak casks for at least three years, but most singled malt are matured for longer.  The longer the scotch spends in the barrel, the more water evaporates, leaving behind a smoother, mellower, and more costly amber spirit.
