The All-American Auchentoshan.  
Antique records from the year 1800 mention an illegal Duntocher distillery, which may have been a predecessor to the legal Auchentoshan distillery. A license for distillation was obtained in 1823. It is the only Scottish distillery left employing a true full-time third distillation. This makes for a sweeter and more delicate Scotch, which is unique. The Distillery is located near Glasgow (that's why it's also known as Glasgow's Malt Whisky) in the Lowland region of Scotland.
 
Auchentoshan American Wood is aged only in first-fill ex-Bourbon casks. This non-age statement Whisky is the latest permanent addition to the Auchentoshan range. You'll get lots of vanilla sweetness here, with a smooth liquid owing to the triple distilled process Auchentoshan has put this Whisky through. Definitely a fan favorite and a good aperitif or even if you want to share a casual dram over dinner.

90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Auchentoshan uses three-part distillation process that is pretty rare in the world of Scotch Whiskies. Also, each still is a little different, so they have three stills -- an odd number of stills is rare too.
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.
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.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
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.
