A 26-year-old Scottish Phoenix.
 
Orphan Barrel Distillery has a special task: find the rarest and most exclusive barrels of Whisky. Their snoopers and sniffers comb through the nooks of warehouses and distilleries, grabbing every liquid treasure and take it to Tullahoma, Tennessee. They bottle the gems and when they’re gone, they’re gone for good. For this bottle, they had to travel to Dufftown in Scotland, where Pittyvaich Distillery operated between 1974 and 1993 (it was demolished in 2002). From those sad ashes rises this 26-year-old Single Malt Scotch.
 
Pittyvaich’s Single Malt was never widely available and never had a chance to become big. Since the distillery was around for only 18 years, this Spirit is extremely rare and sought-after. It also makes it older than its creator. The fruity and vanilla-forward Scotch was rescued and put in sexy bottles that carry the name “Forager’s Keep”. They really had to forage to find this one, and it’s a keeper.

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).
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
First-class Whiskies are taxed not only by the state but also by the angels. This refers to the 4% of Whisky that evaporates from the barrels every year, a phenomenon known as the angel’s share.
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.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
