This was distilled at Caperdonich in 1970. The distilled was mothballed in 2002, so its whisky is becoming rather rare. This was aged in cask 4378 before bottling in 2008 by Adelphi as a release of 184 bottles.

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.
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.
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.
When the distillery was renamed in 1965, they used the name of the local water source: the Caperdonich Burn.
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).
