Scotch Single Malt Whisky
These are whiskies that have been distilled at one distillery only, aged for at least three years and bottled above 40% abv. No grain whiskies can sit within this character, only those that have been made purely with malted barley. There are six regions where Scotch single malts are produced, these typically define the style and character of the whiskies. Speyside and Highlands are renowned for those rich and fruity styled whiskies, whilst Islay is home to the peat smoke.

The first of the Bodega Series from Talisker which will feature delicious whiskies that involve sherry maturation is a 40 year old bottle finished in sherry casks from the Bodega Delgado Zuleta that once held 40 year old Amontillado.
