Character Goatson
Mosstowie is the name given to whisky distilled in the Lomond Still at the Miltonduff distillery. They started making Mosstowie whisky in 1964, but stopped in 1981. Therefore, this 1979 vintage, bottled by Gordon and MacPhail is a particularly rare whisky.

The site of the Miltonduff distillery was previously the grain mill for the neighboring Abbey. One wonders how quickly the monks realized they could make booze, instead of bread.
The site was an illegal hooch operation before going legit after the passage of the Excise Act in 1823.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
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).
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.
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.
