Under the Madeiran sun

According to the legend, the Tarlogie springs in Tain, Scotland, have enabled the production of alcohol in those parts from as early as 1703. It was in 1843, however, that John and William Mathesen founded the Glenmorangie distillery in place of a former brewery. One of the most frequently awarded distilleries in the world, it has been a staple of quality in the world of Whisky ever since, with its unique copper pot stills (the tallest in Scotland), locally-sourced barley, and white oak casks manufactured from wood grown in their own forest in the American Ozarks.

Glenmorangie Bacalta (Scots Gaelic for 'baked') is the eight release of the company's award-winning Private Collection, inspired by Glenmorangie's Madeira Wood Finish single malt that the distillery released some 20 years ago – the first Whisky of its kind. Bacalta is first matured for ten years in ex-Bourbon barrels, then finished for two in bespoke Madeira casks, and finally reconstructed and imbued with the prized sweet Malmsey Madeira. This fruity, honeyed malt, bottled at 46% abv, brings to mind the mellow, sweet scent of days spent under the Madeiran sun.

Smartass corner: Malmsey Madeira is one of the few Madeiras to be produced from white grape, namely the sweet Malvasia variety.

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.
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.
The Glenmorangie Distillery used to be a brewery.
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.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
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.
