This is no ordinary Balvenie Single Barrel, oh no. This is a very old edition, distilled on the 14th August 1980, matured in cask number 9940 and bottled on the 21st September 1995. Rather rare indeed.

Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The Balvenie sits directly across from Glenfiddich, and they share the same water source -- the Robbie Dubh stream -- that runs into the Fiddich River.
