That great tipple, Scottish Whisky, or Scotch, comes in two forms; Blended, where there are two or more whiskys combined to make an improved taste and product, and the Single Malt, which is made by distillations at one site and by just a single producer. Normally the Blends are made from mixing grain and malt whiskys and the Single Malts just use only malt which is usually more expensive. Scotch Whisky Regulations say that a "Single Malt Scotch Whisky" must be made exclusively from malted barley.  It must also be distilled using a pot still, and it must be aged for at least three years in wooden oak casks of a capacity not exceeding 700 litres (154 gallons). In the United States however, they have their own regulations and some American Single Malt Whiskey is produced from malted rye and not the usual malted barley. Barley, yeast and water are the only main ingredients used in the manufacture of barley-based, single malt whisky. The "malting" of the barley requires soaking the barley for 2 to 3 days in water, after which it then germinates to convert the starch into fermentable sugars. Then it is dried by heating and sometimes even smoke from burning peat or similar is added to give it that smoky flavour and aroma. Next, the now dried malt is milled into a coarse flour and then hot water is used to extract the sugar from it and achieve a sugary substance that is called "wort". Yeast is then added to the wort and it begins to ferment. It is then distilled at least two more times and then finally the ageing process takes place by putting into casks to mature. This ageing process can take up to twenty-five years and more in some instances. What the casks are actually made of can be critical to the finished taste, look and aroma of the final product. A popular cask is a re-used one from American Whiskey production process.
