Superb Sherried Speyside Scotch.

Hunter Laing have been premium bottlers for three generations since Grampa Fred founded the business in 1949. Forty years later, they introduced The Old Malt Cask brand, one of the most exclusive and high-class series of single cask bottlings. It is the go-to choice of connoisseurs of Single Malt Scotches, bringing only the best Whisky from their vast stock. And now, the line celebrates its 20th birthday.

This beautiful mahogany Spirit comes from the Glenrothes distillery, founded back in 1878, and it spent a dozen years in a Sherry butt. It’s lavish, spicy and immensely well-sherried. Only 577 bottles of this exceptionally smooth Single Malt have been made, so not only it’s a fantastic representative of Speyside Spirits, it’s also ridiculously rare.

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.
Casks are filled with an average strength of 68.9% ABV, which is higher than most distilleries.
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.
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.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
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.
