    They can do that with blended Scotch whisky but not with single malts.   Each single malt has its own color which varies according to age.

    All alcohol is clear until it's gets color from a variety of ways.

    Whiskey is colorless when it is made the color comes from the barrels it is aged in. Not all barrels are going to have the same degree of coloring imparted to the Whiskey. Many manufactures will therefore mix the lighter ones with the darker ones to keep color consistent. That is unless you purchase the entire barrel.

    Blended Scotch can add coloring.  Single Malt Scotch cannot add color.
