Found this and thought you all would find it interesting. Scotch pronunciation.
Unlike wine, Scotch ages only in the barrel. Once bottled its character is set.
Smoky malts do not necessarily come from peaty water but from the process of using peat to toast the barley the Scotch was made with.
Some 80% of casks in Scotland first contained Bourbon which confers vanilla and maple notes on the Scotch.
Ardmore – Smoky-peaty nose and sweet. Peat spice and sweet on the palate with an unexpected, exciting ginger vanilla finish.
Auchentoshan – Light, medium-sweet, almost no peat. Fruity, floral, malty notes and nutty hints.
