Also, how many calories are in a single malt whiskey?

By a cocktail menu's standards, very few indeed. In a Scotch which is 50% alcohol, we're talking about 80 calories per 35ml.

Beside above, where does Whiskey get its calories? The calorie count in whiskey comes from the concentration of alcohol in the drink. An 80-proof whiskey will have less calories than a behemoth 140-proof bottle. (It exists.) If you want to get mathematical about it, know that each gram of alcohol contains seven calories.

Beside above, how many calories are in one whiskey?

Calories per 25ml shot of different spirits

Spirit ABV (%) Calories
Rum 40 52
Vodka 38 51
Whiskey 40 55
Tequila 40 55

What is the lowest calorie whiskey?

Vodka is the alcohol with the lowest calories, at around 100 calories per shot (that's a 50 ml double-measure). Whisky is slightly more, at roughly 110 calories a shot. Gin and tequila are also 110 calories a shot.
