Here in the US if you simply ask for "scotch" you're more likely to get
blended scotch (i.e. a blend of malt and grain whiskies). They're the
highest selling scotch whiskies in the US (e.g. Chivas Regal, Cutty Sark,
J&B, Johnny Walker, Dewars and many others). If you want a single malt
scotch you have to ask for it specifically. There are more than 100 single
malt distilleries in Scotland. The two highest selling single malts here in
the U.S. are Glen Livet and Glen Fiddich, both Speyside malts. I've also
seen one or two varieties of Glenmorangie (a Highland malt) at some
specialty liquor stores here in Connecticut. It's not that easy to get a
wide range of single malts here due to the import laws.
