Ledaig 2008 Sherry Puncheon Private Vintage 
 
Deer, Bear & Moose — masters of flavour, aroma and colour — are back. Guided by the sun and fueled by their relentless obsession to find the perfect dram, they traveled to the Hebridean Isle of Mull, where lies a lonesome distillery that goes by the name of Tobermory.

This time, the Wild Trio found a golden goodness that hails from heavily peated barley and is finished in a Sherry Puncheon cask...

Bear (enthusiastically): “Her smoky, earthy body wrapped in dried fruits and bottled at a natural cask strength of 60.7% abvman, just left us speechless. Ledaig Sherry Puncheon is a young sweet princess, born in 2008. But don't be fooled... this youngling has some courage and tons of character. Seriously!”

Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
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.
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.
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).
