Hi HIBBO,

I would say somewhere in the region of 1200 or even 1500 single malts, difficult to sat, expressions come ad go....

Or if you take "single malt" to mean the essential product rather than the many different expressions (on this basis I'd say that Aberlour is but one single malt even though it has many different versions, but Springbank and Longrow are two separate singles even though produced at the same distillery), it must be something like 120-130 Scotch singles (including the closed but still available ones) and then who knows how many from the rest of the world - another 20? 150 all told? Whether that helps with the bet, I don't know....
