The process of Distilling the Blended Scotch Whisky

With choosing the finest aged single malts and aged grain whiskeys from two of Scotland's most famous distilling regions, Highland and Speyside. The malt whiskey and the grain whiskey is then carefully aged separately. Most blended whiskeys stop at this stage but Whyte and Mackay add an additional step. The final chapter of the maturation story sees the marrying of these two different whiskeys in sherry casks. This triple maturation process produces a whiskey rich in color with golden highlights, round and full on the nose with smooth, rich flavors of honey and fruits. Triple maturation gives this its unique character and depth of color; pouring a medium amber the nose is expressive with pepper, light peat, and citrus aromas.
