Proof66 Notes

The Girvan Patent Still line of whisky is produced by William Grant & Sons out of their Lowlands Girvan distillery... a site normally used for grain whiskey for blending. In this case, "single grain" is not to be confused with "single malt" where it appears the grain is most decidedly not malted prior to distilling. This suggests to us the whisky will have a more grain forward, beer or brandy-like character mixed with the aging oak rather than the heavy malted flavors that come with scotch. The press release suggests that the single grain whisky should be viewed as an "accompaniment" to single malt scotch. Not being a blended scotch and not being a malted scotch, we have simply opted to list it as an "other" scotch. 

The Girvan Patent Still 25yr Single Grain whisky was the first release in the range announced in October of 2013 and celebrating the 50th anniversary of the patent still itself. It is aged in both first- and second-fill ex-bourbon casks along with what they describe as "some" sherrywood and virgin oak." At this time, we're not sure what "single grain" is actually used to make the distillate... most likely candidates are corn, wheat, and unmalted barley.
