Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
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.
One of the reasons that they ran "old" and "new" Clynelish Distilleries concurrently for a while, was due to a shortage of Islay single malt available for blending in 1970s.
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.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
"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.
