Single Malt

Scottish single malt is whisky made from malted barley in pot stills in a malt distillery. The pot still do not operate continous this means that the still has to be filled again after to other beer has been distilled. After the maturation the casks will be married together to get a constant stile of the malt - this is called vatting. The whisky will be diluted between 40% und 46% and it will also chill filtered very often. Whisky straight from the cask without any dilution is called cask strength whisky and whiksy from only one specific cask is called a single cask bottling. The age of a single malt states the time where the wisky has been matured in the cask.
