A beautiful, classic example of Speyside Single Malt Whisky with a hint of mystery.

The Lundie family has been dealing is Scottish Whisky since 1904. William Lundie & Co. was founded initially as R. D. Lundie & Co. in 1932 by Robert (Bobbie) Lundie — brokering and trading Whiskey across the UK. In between big wholesales deals, they would find spare barrels of high-end Whisky and create private and independent bottlings. This practice goes on to this day. In 2004, the company was acquired by J&G Grant — owners of the Glenfarclas Distillery in Speyside.

The Lismore line includes a collection of Single Malts and Blended Scotch Whiskies produced by William Lundie & Co. The thing is, the Lismore line is famous for keeping the origin of their spirits a closely-held secret. But we can make an educated guess or two. Lismore 21 Year Old is proudly labeled as a Speyside Single Malt aged a full twenty-one years. And this perennial favorite has long been suspected to be sourced from either Glenrothes or Glenfarclas. Since J&G Grant owns both Lundie AND Glenfarclas, we think we know the answer (wink wink). But this is a classic, superbly-aged, and mysterious Speyside Single Malt at a killer price for the age and quality.

90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
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.
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.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
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.
