As with any scotch whisky, single malt must be distilled in Scotland and matured in oak casks for a minimum of three years, however the most popular and best quality scotches mature for much longer. While there are several types of grain that can be malted to make whisky (rye, barley, wheat, etc), single malt uses only barley. The other distinguishing quality is that all the malts in the bottle must come from a single distillery. Flavor and aroma can differ greatly from one single malt to the next, which is why many whisky connoisseurs enjoy tasting scotch from different distilleries and at different age variations. Typically, anything aged over 10-12 years is considered to be specialty.
