A reflection of the sea and the ancient islands.

Ian MacLeod & Company LTD was founded in 1933 as a Scottish Whisky broker — buying, selling, trading production lots from the major distilleries around Scotland. Over the years the company has grown quite a bit, including more than three dozen house brands and an untold number of private label offerings. Now owned by the Russell family, they run the gamut from Whiskies to Vodkas to Rums, but their core business is still Scotch Whisky.

One of their brands is The Six Isles. The Six Isles is special. It’s the only brand that brings together Single Malts from the 6 ancient islands of Scotland in one blend: Islay, Skye, Orkney, Mull, Arran, and Jura. You could say it’s the wilderness that these Whiskies have in common. Each sip is the essence of island life, from the “dawn breaking over the Black Cuillin of Skye, waves crashing at nightfall on Jura, or spirits whispering at Orkney's standing stones”.

The Six Isles Voyager Blended Malt Whisky is a very pleasant coastal bottling. With wafts of peat and sea breeze, it offers plenty of robust and malty notes, vanilla, buttered bread, and naturally, salty maritime flavors. Clocking in at 46% ABV, this is the more gentle expression of the two that reflect the 6 ancient islands. Savor this one neat, on the rocks, or add a few drops of water to open up the complex layers even further.

90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
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.
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.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
