Scottish ecstasy reminiscing about the Golden Era
 
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 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.
 
Glenmorangie releases a snazzy Private Edition each year, offering Scotch aficionados something exciting and unique. Year Nine was especially extravagant since Spios came out (Spios means 'spice' in Gaelic). Director of Whisky Creation, Dr Bill Lumsen came up with Glenmorangie's first Scotch entirely matured in American barrels that used to hold Kentucky Rye Whiskey. The result is a wonderful and balanced Whisky that is both unmistakably Glenmorangie and a delightful homage to the bygone elegance of America's golden era.

The Glenmorangie Distillery used to be a brewery.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
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.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
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.
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.
