There still is faith for Scotch.

 
Cadenhead's was founded in 1842 and is arguably Scotland's oldest independent bottler. Today, the company is situated in Campbeltown — the once Whisky capital of the world — and has stores in several major European cities. When Cadenhead’s decide to champion a certain dram it really means something in the Whisky world. For this bottling it is Mortlach.
 
Mortlach distillery was founded in 1823 by James Findlater. It was the first “legal” distillery in Dufftown, a little town that holds no less than six prominent distilleries. Mortlach’s history is a honorable one full of tradition, innovation, and engineering — including the famous “2.81” distillation method using multiple still types. Their product is an integral part of premium Johnnie Walker blends, but they also get to show off with their own Single Malt expressions and other special editions.
 
This Mortlach sold out almost instantly upon release, partly because of the extremely limited batch, but even more because it received rave reviews from the biggest names in the industry. This bottling was matured in Bourbon Hogshead for 20 years. Cadenhead’s Mortlach 20YO is a clearly defined and aggressive dram that is nonetheless extremely drinkable. The buy button is most likely missing from the page, but if you’re lucky enough to catch it… you better have quick fingers.

90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Mortlach was closed several times in its rockier early years. The facility was put to various uses, the most tickling among them: a brief stint as a church.
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.
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 Whiskies sold are Blends.
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.
