Rejoice: the marvelous mòine Scotch returns.
 
Bunnahabhain (pronounced the same way Ewan McGregor would say Guten Tag), which means “mouth of the river” in Gaelic, found its home on the remote briny coast of the remote Scottish island of Islay. It’s the most northern distillery, which should be enough for them to be knighted the King of the North (of Islay). The distillery was founded by William Robertson and the Greenlees Brothers in 1881. After a few difficulties that included the gale blowing two perfectly good boilers into the ocean, the first bottle of Scotch was filled in 1883. Unfortunately, the distillery was closed in the year when E.T. came out, but they reopened it in 2002 with new plans and a twinkle in their eye. What’s their secret? Their source of water, which is the cool spring in the Margadale hills. When you taste their Whiskies, it’s like being on a boat: the smell of the sea and a whiff of peat smoke. 
 
Another lesson in Gaelic is Toiteach a Dhà, which means “Smoky Two”. It’s an explosive sequel to the popular peaty blockbuster Toiteach. The producers saw that we loved its sumptuous smoky action, so they amped it up and added a strong sherried spice character. Bunnahabhain’s Senior Blender, Dr. Kirstie McCallum handpicked a combo of ex-Bourbon and Sherry casks to mature this peaty-sweet paradox of a Whisky. The grand Islay distiller wows our palates yet again.

Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
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.
Investigating -- and to the surprise and thrill of everyone -- they found a single cask of Whisky in storage that no one knew about. It was now aged a full 40 years.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
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.
