Golden nectar from the Scottish Highlands. 

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 a 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. 

This very bottle is the epitome of class and quality. It's aged for at least a decade in ex-Bourbon barrels and after that, it's double-barreled for extra two years in upscale casks that used to hold sweet French wine Sauternes, which makes it as ritzy as F. Scott Fitzgerald's diamond. The voluptuous "Nectar of Gold" is creamy and sweet and it earned a score of 95/100 from Wine Enthusiast, and 94 points from the legendary Jim Murray's Whisky Bible. Oh, and the gold medal at IWSC in 2017. It's decadently splendid and every home bar should have it.

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.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
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.
