SIA (pronounced "See-ah") Scotch is a blend of Speyside (50%), Highlands (40%) and Islay (10%) malt and grain whiskies selected by Scotch enthusiast Carin Luna-Ostaseski to "appeal to a modern palate." It has a ratio of 40% - 60% malt to grain, which were considered after conducting a series of blind tastings to determine the final blend.

Tasting Notes

"Walnut and citrus sherried notes are the first thing to emerge, with a more grainy cereal flavor on the palate. In reading the specs on this whisky, was expecting the Islay influence to be dialed down considerably, but a pleasant, robust iodized briny note comes though in the finish and lingers in the glass, mixing well with the other flavors. However, the specs also say it can be mixed in a "curious cocktail." So does that mean it will make you eager to ask questions after drinking it? (See, it's already working...)"
