Brand names are often applied to single malts when distilleries sell on stock to supermarkets or independent bottlers so you never really know what actual distillery you are drinking. Guessing though is half the fun of these “Secret” regional specific malts and you can often find yourself a real bargain and it is not always the case of well known brands selling off inferior stock.
