A Speyside single malt Whisky older than disco music.

Established in 1842, Cadenhead is Scotland’s oldest independent bottler. Their two shops in London and Edinburgh are veritable shrines to the art and science of Whisky. For their own line of spirits they purchase a cask or two at a time from the best distilleries. What matters to them is that they find something unique or special that is in too limited a supply for the those distilleries to effectively market. Otherwise, these odd-lot casks of heavenly spirit would be destined to be sloshed into large vats of blended Whisky — and that’s no good, right?

In 1976 the United States celebrated it’s bicentennial, the Winter Olympics were celebrated in Austria, and Apple Computer was formed by Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. 1976 was also the year that Cadenhead Glentauchers 38 Year Old went into it aging barrels in the Highlands of Scotland. Glentauchers is a classic Speyside single malt Whisky. Most years, 100% of their production goes into supporting premium Scotch blends. Every once in a while there is enough left over for a rare single malt release. The fact that Cadenhead got them to part with a handful of casks that had been aging gracefully for nearly four decades in ex-Bourbon casks is simply amazing.

90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
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.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
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.
