A scotch single malt is the product of one pot still distillery and has not been mixed with whisky from any other distilleries; but it is possible for a scotch single malt to be a mixture of batches from over the years.

By law scotch single malt must be matured in a bonded warehouse for a minimum of three years and to called scotch single malt whsiky it must be matured in scotland.
