You can't have Flaughter without laughter.

Flaughter's one of six anCnoc (pronounced [a-nock]) peated Whiskies coming from the Knockdhu Distillery, situated in a beautiful village of Knock in Aberdeenshire way up in the north of Scotland. Its name comes from a spade that is used to remove the top layer of peat - the one that's richer and produces more reek. It gives a smokier flavor to the Whisky (14.8 ppm) that emerged from the stills at Knockdhu and was aged in Bourbon casks.

The distillery has been making Whisky since 1894, when it was considered the most modern of its time. And a hundred years later, the process is the same: the good old loyal copper pot is still making the delicious Spirit and worms still condense vaporized alcohol (a pretty rare thing these days!). They age the Whisky in American and Spanish oak barrels that used to hold Bourbon or Sherry. Those are put in dunnage warehouses where thick walls take care of consistent temperature. This golden peaty luxury is smoky, soft and creamy, and brings the hearty laughter of the Highlands to your living room.

Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
