Single malt: whisky produced only from barley malt, in one distillery but not necessarily from one distillation. Single barrel/cask: a more precise term than single malt. Whisky is produced only from barley malt, similarly as with single malt, in one distillery, but comes only from one distillation and from a specific barrel. Usually a bottle with such whisky has the date of bottling and the barrel number signed on it. Very often such bottles have a higher amount of alcohol, 50% and more, while the standard is 40-45%. Such whisky is not cool filtered. Cask strength: whisky, which was not diluted before bottling. The amount of alcohol may be even 60%. Pure malt/vatted malt: this group is whisky, which was produced only from the barley malt, but in different distilleries (the best known example is Johnnie Walker Pure Malt, that is Green Label).
“During the night, not only did we gain the basics of wine and tasting knowledge, but we also faced the tasks prepared by the organizers.”
“A professional and intelligent presentation of cognac and armagnac combined with tasting were a perfect ending of the meeting.”
