Perhaps the most interesting — and tasty — Single Malt blend of the year.

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.

“The Bartender’s Malt” is an interesting new idea. Auchentoshan holds an annual “New malt Order” cocktail competition among bartenders. A jury of the top twelve contestants from around the world are gathered together to taste and blend barrels from the Auchentoshan warehouses. Each year there is a different set of bartenders selecting different casks — making it a strictly limited release that tastes a bit different each year. But as you might guess, Auchentoshan has a long history of using wine-finished casks across Whiskies aged up to twenty years, but that signature rich chocolate aroma they are famous for still shines through.

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
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.
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.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
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.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
