What does it mean when they talk about a single malt scotch or a double malt scotch? and does anyone know which brand of scotch would be either of them ?????
thanks

Single malt is scotch from one distillery. Blended scotch is several different scotches mixed together. Most of your higher end whiskys are single malts and there are too many to list. My go to scotch is Highland Park 12 year old, a moderately priced ($50 a bottle) scotch that's pretty good. Blended scotch is often the cheaper ones like Cutty Sark, etc. but there are good blended scotches like some of the higher end Johnnie Walker blends.

I drank a fair amount of Scotch in my day....tending more towards bourbon nowadays.

Funny, my son drinks Cutty Sark at his house, but when Pops takes him out, it's always The Macallan.

Met two guys the other day carting a cooler of ice off the local glacier: going to be dedicated ice for their Scotch and Bourbon...apparently it melts at a much slower rate. Learn something every day.

Nah! Should put a few pebbles in the freezer, the original 'Scotch on the Rocks'. No sense in diluting it any more than one or two DROPS of water, which does actually improve the taste. Makes as much sense as buying 'Lite' beer!- better to use 'ordinary' beer and add 28% water!
