A superb exemplar of a Lowland Scotch.

Glenkinchie Distillery is set on a farmland, 15 km from Edinburgh. It was established in 1825 by brothers George and John Rate. Originally named Milton Distillery, the brothers renamed it around 1837.

In 1969 Glenkinchie stopped malting its own grain and malting floors were transformed into a museum of malt Whisky. Two decades later, in 1989, the brand was revived by United Distillers, when they started marketing it under their classic malt brands. Today it is one of the few remaining distilleries in the Lowland region.

Glenkinchie 1996 Distillers Edition was distilled in 1996 and bottled in 2010. It has undergone a second maturation, or finish, in Amontillado casks (a variety of Sherry) giving it a superb flavor profile. This 14 Year Old Scotch is hard to come by and it is a superb exemplar of a Lowland Scotch Whisky.

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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
