This is the Single Malt story of the year that you’ve been waiting for.

Daftmill is a teeny-tiny distillery by today’s standards. It’s a throwback to the era of farmhouse distilleries of the 1800s. The total annual capacity is just 20,000 liters. To put that into perspective, Glenlivet produces that much in half a day. Daftmill is the passion project of co-founder Francis Cuthbert. His family were tenants of the land near Fife, Scotland, before purchasing it from the Walker family in 1984. In 2005 they were granted a license to distill on their land. And they were VERY patient — issuing their first release in 2018 of those first distilled Spirits.

Daftmill 2006 Summer Batch Release Scotch Whisky is just the second release from this boutique distillery in the Lowlands. This twelve year-old Single Malt was pulled from just seven first-fill ex-Bourbon casks yielding only 1689 bottles in total — bottled at a perfect 46% ABV. All of the barley used to make this Spirit was farmed by Francis Cuthbert himself. It just does not get any more wonderfully authentic than this. Each bottle is wonderful and eminently collectible.

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