“There are three requirements for beauty. Firstly, integrity or perfection—for if something is impaired it is ugly. Then there is due proportion or consonance. And also clarity: whence things that are brightly coloured are called beautiful” Aquinas; Summa Theologica I, 39, 8.
 
Fresh out of the barrel. The hottest juice in town. This 15-year-young baller knocks it out of the park and into the stratosphere with ease. Sourced from one of the finest distilleries in Scotland, specifically, a distillery that has its roots deep in the harsh, windswept region of Orkney–you know the one…
 
How can such a bleak and ravaged land inspire something so beautiful, so sublime, is a mystery to us. But our Wild Trio believes the answer lies within the question, and the Whisky presented – their proof.
 
Integrity. Proportion. Clarity. This Orkney Island Single Malt has it all. The 14th Deer, Bear & Moose Edition has found its rightful place in our pantheon, and its thirteen predecessors greet it proudly.

Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
