Scotch Single Malt

Scotch Single Malt is thought to be the finest Scotch Whisky out there. While that's debatable, one thing's for sure: this Scotch only uses one type of grain.

But there are other rules when it comes to making it, such as using malted barley from a single distillery and aging it in oak barrels for at least three years. Sticklers for rules, those Scotch. And our drams are all the better for it.
Can Scotch go bad?
Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Is Scotch Kosher?
Scotch in its purest form is entirely kosher. However, Single Malts can often be matured in Sherry casks. Sherry, as a form of Wine, is not kosher. Simple answer is, check the bottle. 
What is a dram of Whisky?
For all practical purposes, a dram just means “a wee bit” No one is holding a measuring spoon when they measure out their drams! But technically speaking, is a little less than a teaspoon of Scotch. To be more precise, it’s 1⁄8 of a fluid ounce or about 4 mL.

Single Malt Scotch started off as an office perk— distilleries gave their staff a dram up to five times a day completely free of charge. But in fact, the distilleries were using these lucky tasters as an unofficial focus group. Sign us up!

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.
Scotch Single Malt
The Excise Act of 1823 made many significant changes to the way the industry was taxed and regulated. It laid the foundations for the whole modern Whisky industry, resulting in the rapid demise of illicit distilling and an equally rapid growth in the number of legal distilleries in the following years.
