Bad news: the storied North Port distillery is now a… supermarket. We know, we know. You can’t make this stuff up. Anyway, it was in operation from 1820 to 1983. And in that time, it produced some pretty legendary Scotch. 
 
Which leads us to some good news: in that time, they produced this 20-year-old stunner. Bottled in 1979, this member of Diageo’s Rare Malt series clocks in at a solid 61.2% ABV and offers a hell of a kick in the pants. Provided you're wearing them, of course.

Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
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.
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.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
