Scotch is all matured in oak casks for at least three years (and a day). Even so, the colour varies from dark amber to almost clear. That Suntory.
Retail whisky is pretty much always coloured with caramel for consistency and to get the whisky colour that people expect. If you drink at somewhere like the Scotch Malt Whisky Society where the whisky is bottled straight out of the cask, you'll see much more variation in colour and taste.
