Join a lively and important discussion about the common threads and differences of three established Single Malts from three separate countries. Learn about each country's Single Malt history (in the frame of a respective brand), its current landscape and the future, touching on regulations and culture.
Scotland is the definitive homeland of Single Malt whisky. Its culture, and most especially the Scotch Whisky Association, has set the tone for worldwide Single Malt expansion.
The United States finds its single malt building blocks in the craft beer movement, distilling a great beer to concentrate and capture flavor.
In Japan, single malt whiskies are creating new identity without any regulations.
Each distillery's approach will be shown in a blind tasting of American Oak-matured whiskies.
