Character Dogson
"Old" Clynelish (Brora), was converted to producing a peated Whisky that mimicked the Islay character. This is one of the reasons that some smoky blends from the 1970s and 1980s, taste very different now than they did back then.
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.
The water source for Clynelish is the Clynemilton burn, which is also rich in gold deposits. Currently, they judge the value of the water higher for Whisky production, than for the small flakes of gold sometimes visible in the stream.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
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.
