Real Single Malt Whisky is all about the passion. But sometimes the math alone is enough to win you over. Auchentoshan 1988 is a full measure of their premium Lowland Single Malt aged 8 years in Boubon cask and another 12 years in Saint-Julien Bordeaux wine casks. Then it is served at 52.4% ABV. All that adds up to “seriously tasty.” 

Auchentoshan 1988… the math adds up to “seriously tasty.” 
 
About the Producer:
Auchentoshan sounds like the name of a medieval warrior, but it actually translates from Gaelic as “the field in the corner.” The locals call it “Glasgow’s Malt Whisky” because the distillery sits nearby, and it is one of the few remaining Lowland Single Malt Whiskies left in the world. But what you really need to know is that Auchentoshan does four things that make it special: they lightly malt the barley, it never gets anywhere near peat smoke, it’s triple distilled, and it’s aged only in premium Bourbon, Sherry, Port, and Wine casks. 
 
About the Product:
Auchentoshan loves dropping special limited editions on the market, and all of them are greeted by the Whisky-loving community with enthusiasm and smiles. This is one of those. There are only 1800 bottles available. If that sounds like a lot, it’s not when you consider how man fans they have around the world. It will go quick.
 
Auchentoshan 1988 spent its first 8 years in traditional ex-Bourbon casks. Then it was transferred to Saint-Julien Bordeaux wine casks for another 12 years. If you add all that up, it takes all of your fingers and toes because that’s a FULL 20 years. And they keep it real, pouring out at 52.4% ABV. If your mouth isn’t watering yet there is something wrong with you.

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.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
