Isle Of Skye 12 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky
About Isle Of Skye 12 Year Old Blended Scotch WhiskyBack in 1936, Leonard Russell Senior founded Ian Macleod & Company Ltd., a whisky broking company. Ian Macleod Distillers is an independent, family-owned company with an impressive portfolio of premium quality spirits. In 1963, Isle of Skye blended Scotch whisky was the first brand they acquired. Today, this is the world's 10th largest Scotch whisky company that owns brands from Glengoyne, Tamdhu, Smokehead Scotch whiskies and Edinburgh Gin among others.
Located off the West Coast of mainland Scotland, the Isle of Skye is famous for its natural beauty and wildlife. It's the largest and most northern island in the Inner Hebrides – it is also the home of the Clan Macleod and where Isle of Skye Blended Scotch Whisky comes from.
Blended whiskies contain single malts and single grains and if scotch, they must be aged for at least three years in oak. Isle of Skye 12 Year Old Blended Scotch Whisky was created based on the Macleod family's 19th century recipe. Each of the Island and Speyside malts in the blend are aged at least 12 years – but most of them are aged for much longer. After they are blended, they're matured in oak casks, which is unusual as most blends go straight to bottle. Bottled at 86 proof, this is an exceptionally smooth and mellow blended scotch whisky with sweet Speyside flavors influenced by smoky and peaty Island influences. One of the most premium blends out there.

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
