Character Goatson
Scotch with Sherry character, not meant to be shared.

The tiny town of Rothes by the River Spey is home to four distilleries and has Scotch embedded in its DNA. One of those Whisky-making establishments is the Glenrothes Distillery (its name is literally "the valley of Rothes"), with history dating back to 1879. With ancient recipes and tradition by their side, they have been making award-winning Whiskies for decades.

This bottle holds an elegant 25 years old expression that was predominantly matured in first-fill ex-Sherry casks, which brings exciting woody notes followed by a salted caramel character. It's a well-balanced and elegant classic that should be enjoyed neat in order to taste the extraordinary flavors of a quarter of a century. This is a limited release that was originally meant to be a travel-retail exclusive. It won the Chairman's Trophy Award for Best Speyside Single Malt at the 2018 Ultimate Spirits Competition.

Character Dogson
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.
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.
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.
Casks are filled with an average strength of 68.9% ABV, which is higher than most distilleries.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
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).
