New-comers in malt whisky retail are usually from re-opened distilleries, or working distilleries which never before bottled their whisky as Single Malt. Many famous whisky brands play marketing on high-level and put limited editions on sale. However, new ideas also emerge. Such new ideas in the past decades were the introduction of Cask Strength Malts, Vintage Editions and Wood Finish variants, all of them show the creativity and innovation in the Scotch whisky industry. Cask Strength Malts are whiskies bottled straight from the ageing barrels, so their abv is usually between 43 vol% and 60vol%. These are sometimes not even chill-filtered carefully, so can include much more aroma ingredients. Vintage Editions are bottled mainly by independent bottles (eg. Gordon & MacPhail) and identified by the year of bottling, instead of the period of ageing. The Wood Finish range is an invention by the Glenmorangie distillery, which came out with Port Wood Finish, Sherry Wood Finish and Madeira Wood Finish couple of years ago, followed by Cote D’or Burgundy Wood Finish recently. These are Glenmorangie Single Malt Scotch whiskies matured in American oak wood casks for 10 years, then transferred into Port, Sherry, etc. casks for a further period of maturation. The nature and history of the casks greatly influence the flavour and character of the whisky. The Glenmorangie Wood Finish range is an exceptional range of malt whiskies which can be served confidently at any time, but is best served after dinner.
