The art of blend.
 
Sometimes a blend comes along that has it all. The complexity of flavor, just the right ratio of all ingredients, body like no other and the combination of subtle smoke and peat with the sweet parts of the Blend. Guys at Ian Macleod have done just that with this Blend. They’ve elegantly put together just the right flavors that represent Island and Speyside Whisky.
 
Ian Macleod is a big name in the Whisky industry game and this blend brings us their best of blending. Put together the mellowness of Speyside and a twist of Talisker give it some extra rest together in oak barrels and you get this creation. Smoky almost salty with sweet on top this is really is a Blend that has much to offer.

Pale straw.
 
Nose / Aroma / Smell 
Grains come out first. Later lots of vanilla, oakiness and honey. Evocative and extraodinary!

Light smoke is the song you hear in the background. There is spiciness, caramel, some citrus and even char hum along the main tune.
 
Finish 
Sweet and salty with some oily feeling to it.

Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
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.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
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.
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.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
