Speyside Spectacle with a Bourbon soul.

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.

One of their blockbusters is the Bourbon Cask Reserve, a certified Kosher expression aged in ex-Bourbon American oak casks. Made from Scottish barley and distilled in copper-pot stills, using the purest water of two nearby springs, this particular Single Malt is a breathtaking concoction that won two gold medals at the 2016 WSWA Tasting Competition. With abundant notes of coconut and vanilla, it's a perfect warm shelter from the mad rapid flow of modern life. Take it slow and neat.

90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
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.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
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.
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.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
