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.
During World War II, many distilleries shut down, so Whisky was treated like currency. In 1941, at the height of the war, the SS Politician ran aground on the island of Eriskay in the Scottish Hebrides Islands.
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.
For a brief time in the 1930s, famous New York mobster Frank Costello -- leader of the Mofioso Luciano Crime Family -- managed to "convince" a few farmers to "sell" him their majority interest in the distillery.
In 1945, their King's Ransom blend was served at the Potsdam Conference, at the conclusion of World War II, attended by Churchill, Stalin and Truman.
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.
