August 2021 gave us another magic bottle from Glenmorangie.

In the 1730s, a brewery was built in the Scottish Highlands, namely on the Morangie Farm, and a hundred years later, it was refurbished into a distillery we all know and love: Glenmorangie. Their Spirits are not created equal - they are raised as aristocrats. The water comes from the pristine spring of Tarlogie and the magic that happens is a result of teamwork of sixteen men, affectionately known as the Sixteen Men of Tain. These knights of Whisky distill the potion in the tallest stills in Scotland, creating a lighter and more refined Whisky.

Glenmorangie 13 Year Old Cognac Cask Finish Scotch Whisky graced us with its presence in August 2021. Dr Bill Lumsden is a rock star who oversees Whisky creation at this iconic distillery and for this release, the Whisky wizard experimented with Cognac casks. The recipe went something like this: matured in ex-Bourbon casks for at least 8 years and finished in Cognac casks for 4 extra years. Clocking in at 92 proof, this full-bodied dram demonstrates incredible depth and unique flavors of orange oil, digestive biscuits, ginger, and almond oil.

90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
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.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
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.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
