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.

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.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
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.
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.
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.
