Double barrel masterpiece from the Sound of Islay.

For their twenty-fourth barrel-hunting expedition, the trio of purveyors of fine Spirits sailed to Islay. Deer, Bear, and Moose visited Caol Ila and sniffed around their warehouse. They said you could taste history in the air before they jumped on barrels #150 and #151.

The delicious elixir within was conjured in May 2011, before it spent six years in a hogshead and another four years in first-fill ex-Bourbon barrels. The dance of sweetness, saltiness, and smoke blending into a classic Caol Ila character convinced the seasoned palates of our beasts, and they decided to bottle both barrels as the latest DBM expression.

DBM #24 is exceptional in its own right, but there's an extra angle that makes it even more: it's charitable. Part of the proceeds will be donated to the Movember movement that funds medical research and life-saving programs. Which means DBM #24 is Good in more than one sense.

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.
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.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
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.
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.
