Caledonian used to be the largest distillery in Scotland but was sadly shut down in 1988 after 121 years of operation. There are still treasures left, and some of the forgotten barrels were bottled by independent bottlers before Diageo released this 40-year-old delight under 'The Cally' label as part of their 2015 Special Releases.

The Cally 40YO was distilled in 1974. Its wonderful character takes us time traveling with the rich and sweet nose that evolves into warm wood notes and hints of bitter caramel and cinnamon on the palate—very smooth Scotch with lovely details waiting to be appreciated.

Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
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).
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.
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.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
