Character Goatson
One of the most popular single malts in the World.

In 1824 George Smith made a daring move and got a license to legally produce single malt Whisky. Needless to say, the neighbouring smugglers weren’t all too happy about it, so for protection he had to carry not one, but two guns at all times. Imagine that.

The Glenlivet 12 Year Old is one of the most popular (and best-selling) single malts in the World. It was matured in a mixture of casks made from American and European oak. Using the mineral rich water from Josie’s Well ensures the best possible result during mashing and fermenting to form flavors defining this Highland Scotch.

Bottles from 1970s and 1980s having the Glenlivet name on them, are not always from The Glenlivet Distillery, it could possibly only be referring to the area.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
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.
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 Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
The USA is buying half of the bottles from The Glenlivet Distillery, which are single malts.
