Imagine the ultimate treat for the ultimate fan of Islay Scotch Whisky. Let’s say it was distilled in 1968 when Cortinas and Anglias were parked in front of the distillery. Maybe it was matured for 45 years in a combo of five Sherry butts that were married for the final year. Imagine an insanely complex dram with a tropical nose and a lush bittersweet palate. A rare gem that has no equal, in other words.

We just described Port Askaig 45YO. If you’re an Islay aficionado and are looking for a lavish treat - scour no more, as it doesn’t get better than this.

Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
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.
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.
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.
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.
