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.

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.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
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).
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.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
