A perfectly aged blend of Single Malts finished in Port wood for a rich, velvety dram.
 
In 1993 the movie Jurassic Park came out, Whitney Houston’s remake of “I Will Always Love You” spent ten weeks as the #1 song in America, and Alan Shayne founded Spirit Imports.
 
Alan had already spent decades in and around the Spirits business, and he even founded The Scotch Malt Whisky Society of America. But he set out to create his own brands of premium Spirits that he could be proud of. In the nearly three decades since his daughters Lauren and Gabrielle have joined the firm and together they manage a portfolio of eight brands and dozens of releases.
 
The Classic Cask is a brand of amazing single barrel and strictly limited releases of Single Malt from some of the best distilleries. Each bottle is numbered in series and once a release has run dry it is gone forever
 
The Classic Cask 23 Year Old Port Finish is part of a quartet of twenty-three year-old Spirits released in tandem. All are comprised of single-casks procured from Speyside, Highland, and Island distilleries — each hand selected by Master Blender David Hallgarten of the Glenaden Distilling Company. They were matured in their original casks for a full twenty-three years before being married and divided into quarters for finishing and bottling without chill-filtering. This Port finished release spent an additional six months in first-fill Port pipes.

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.
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.
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).
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
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.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
