Internet-born blend for the modern age. 
 
Carin Luna-Ostaseski was a web designer who was introduced to Whisky and fell for it hard. So, she trained as a bartender, interviewed experts, and set her mind to creating her own brand. What does the modern, internet savvy entrepreneur do to address such an expensive and risky proposition? That’s right… she launched a Kickstarter campaign in 2012 raising more than $45,000 to launch her dream. SIA Scotch Whisky was born as a perfect analogy for craft Whisky production in the modern era.
 
Hunter Laing and Company have been vatting and blending special edition Whiskies for generations, and when Carin set out to concoct her masterpiece, she knew that they would a great partner to give her a hand. SIA Scotch is a blend of Speyside and Highland Single Malts with a touch of Islay added in for a bit of depth and character. 
 
You will notice a dark, honey-gold color that usually speaks to older spirits. But the magic combination of specific drams and ages remains their trade secret. The fruit of their effort is getting rave reviews and awards — taking the Double Gold at San Francisco in 2014 and scoring above 90 pts with Wine Enthusiast and "Outstanding!" with Whisky Advocate. 

Smartass Corner: 
SIA — pronounced “see-ya” — means “six” is Scottish Gaelic. So, why did Carin name her Whisky Sia? Because it is her favorite number that’s why.

Ratings & Reviews
Brad
Brad,
Nice blend with good combination of sweet and smoke. Not a strong finish and does not linger on the palette. One glass is enough as a second glass tended to give me a headache the next day. Decent price but is not on my list of must haves.
Ryan
Ryan,
Very similar to Oban 14, not to much peat so it's right up my alley.
Lorenzo
Lorenzo,
Decent blended scotch, brings together Speyside and Highland malts well. Little more of the vanilla and orange flavors hit your palate, and diminishes quickly. But for the price not to bad, I enjoyed this better neat than with water or ice.
Donald
Donald,
Not for me to buy again. Tasted over ice. The smokey lemon nose does not have strong appeal for me.
