The story goes that Ian Macleod was the immortal warrior Highlander's second cousin, twice removed... Just kidding. While they share the same clan name, the first isn't in the business of wielding swords and aerating the family jewels, but rather quality spirits. Ian Macleod Distillers is the home of many a brand including Glengoyne, Tamdhu, Isle of Skye, King Robert II, etc. The family-owned op has fought battles of its own, though. They've kept quality over quantity in the face of adversity — ehm — big, bloated corporations.

They have gathered a selection of single malt Scotches under the banner of Shieldaig, named for the picturesque loch and nearby town. "Shieldaig" comes from Old Norse and stands for "The Loch of the Herring", but there's nothing fishy about the Whiskies that are bottled there. As you've probably guessed from its name, Speyside Single Malt comes from a single Speyside distillery. Oh, and it's made from malted barley. Cheers, Captain Obvious!

Corner
Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavor finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.
