“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.

Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
