Oh, Islay. How we love your peaty ways. But there are occasions when life calls for a more… subtle hand. And that’s when we look to the Bunnahabhain Distillery, founded in 1881 near Port Askaig on Islay. Their distinctly mild single malts stand out in a sea of heavily-peated Scotches. Because sometimes, a gentle hand is more effective than a hammer, ya dig?
 
The Palo Cortado expression is a 20-year-old Islay dram that was distilled in 1997 and bottled in 2018. The finish? You’re looking at two years spent in Palo Cortado casks. Bottled at 54.9% ABV, only 1620 bottles exist.

In 2012, a batch of old ledger books from the early 1960s were found in storage. Looking over the entries out of curiosity, one of the cellar-masters noticed an entry that he did not recognize, giving a storage location.
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.
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.
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.
