As long as all the whisky in the bottle was made from malted barley and from only one distillery, it is a single malt.
The only malts containing whisky of the same age are "single cask" bottlings. That is, all the whisky in the bottle comes from one cask. If it doesn't say "single cask" on the label, you can be sure that there are whiskies of various ages in the bottle.
What can I ad further more on your comment.
Sometimes they use much older ages to achieve consistency, a good thing. But sometimes it's very nice to have a vintage, wich means a production from one year, and then compare the regular product with the vintage, sometimes the results are very astonishing...
