Category Clarification:
Malt: Includes Single Malt (all from same distillery) and Blended Malts (100% malt but from different distilleries). To help define the product some have been listed as Single Malt Scotch, or Single Malt. However, for Best in Class purposes, these are the same category.
Bourbon Cask: Malt whisky which has been aged in bourbon cask
Non-Bourbon Cask: Malt whisky that has influence from casks other than bourbon. This includes Malts that are a blend of bourbon and non-bourbon casks, and malts matured in bourbon cask and finished in non-bourbon casks.
