You love Scotch. You love Bourbon. A never shall the twixt meet…

Nah. Macallan says eff that. This unique bottling from Hunger & Laings Old and Rare line was distilled in 1978 and bottled at 52% ABV in 2007 after being finished in Bourbon casks. Best of both worlds, this.

This is bottle 199 of 219 produced. A gloriously rare bird.

90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
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.
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.
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.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
