A rich and caramely single grain Scotch found sitting in barrels, untouched for twenty-four years and now we can finally have a dram.

An "orphan barrel" is a common term in the Spirits industry for a barrel that has missed out on a release of a blend for one reason or another. Sometimes it’s because it was simply misplaced in the rickhouse — if you’ve ever seen the inside of one of these massive storage facilities you’d understand how easy that can happen. Very often these casks are sold off to independent bottlers. Diageo launched their own brand called "Orphan Barrel" to do that exact same thing when a handful of barrels are found in their amazingly huge inventory. Originally they intended to use this outlet for just the Whiskies in their American portfolio, but they’ve recently opened it up to their other properties in the UK.

Muckety-Muck from Orphan Barrel is EXACTLY the kind of special release bottling they intended. Someone found a handful of casks distilled at the Port Dundas Distillery near Glasgow. The facility was closed more than a decade ago. But here we have a bunch of casks of twenty-four year-old single grain Scotch just sitting there with nowhere to go. So they bottled it up at 45% ABV and brought this golden, obviously limited edition opportunity to us. And in keeping with the limited edition nature of this offering, there are six color variations in the label, no doubt spurring collector demand.

Smartass Corner:
The Port Dundas Distillery sits on a hill overlooking Glasgow proper. It was founded in 1810 and made Spirits for two hundred years.

Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
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.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
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.
