    This Diageo Special release is one of the few single-grain whiskies offered in this highly sought-after selection. The "Cally" is from Caledonian Distillery and was nicknamed that by the employees. The name stuck and Diageo decided to keep it for all future releases. The Cally is all butterscotch and coconut, it has some toasty notes too and lots of almond and cloves. It finishes with a powerful palate of chocolate and toffee along with oak - not too heavy though.

Region

Scotland

Scotch whisky is the name given to all whiskies produced in Scotland under strict rules that govern the production: “Scotch Whisky must, by law, be distilled and matured in Scotland in oak casks for at least three years and bottled at a minimum alcoholic strength of 40% abv. The robust legal protection of Scotch – vital to safeguard a spirit globally renowned for its quality – has grown over time.” It’s a proudly British industry – 93% of Scotch whisky is sold abroad and it alone generates 25% of all British food and drink exports, employing 40,000 people. The main focus of the fine whisky market are single Malts made in relatively small quantities in a batch process using a traditional copper pot. There are also Single Grain whiskies which are mixed with single malt whiskies but made on an industrial scale. The final type is blended Scotch whisky which is a mixture of grain and malt whiskies generally mass produced. Scotland is divided into various areas where the distilleries all make whiskies with distinctive geographical characteristics. Much like fine wine, even within these regions there is a great range of styles to be discovered and enjoyed by new and experienced drinkers alike.
