Glenmorangie 18 has taken "The Priz" — beating all comers in its category. 

Located near Tain in the northern Highlands, the Glenmorangie Distillery was founded in 1843 when the Matheson brothers converted the Morangie farm into a distillery by the sea. The stills are the tallest in Scotland at 26’ — ensuring that only the lightest vapors make it to the top and resulting in a smooth, fresh, and elegant range of 23 fine single malt Whiskies. Glenmorangie is the best selling single malt Whisky in Scotland and the rest of the UK, and one of Uncle Flaviar’s personal favorites. 

If you're already a fan of Glenmorangie single malts, then you understand. If you are new to Glenmorangie, you — my friend — are in for a treat. The core single malt in the Glenmorangie line-up is a classic Highlander aged for a decade in ex-Bourbon casks. The 18 YO takes this winning formula up a few notches in complexity and sophistication by starting with an initial aging of fifteen years. Then about 1/3 of the spirit is placed into Oloroso Sherry casks for the remaining three years while the rest stays put. Both parts are then remarried for bottling. The end result is deliciously rich and sophisticated.

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.
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).
The Glenmorangie Distillery used to be a brewery.
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.
All of the stills that were added later in expansions, are replicas of those that were built in 1887.
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.
