Single malt glass

A true single malt whiskey is a brew that is distilled in a single place. There is no inclusion of some other blends of grain whiskey in this product. A single cask whiskey has been in a single cask and never transferred to accommodate different blends. This whiskey, when full strength, can exceed sixty percent alcohol by volume.

Most single malts are bottled at between forty and forty-six percent because the authorized limit is set at a minimum of forty percent. Ask power is a time period used when the alcohol level continues to be relatively high and the brew has not been watered down or if it has been the addition of water was low. Cask strength is just not all the time merely one cask it may be from a number of casks inclusively.
