Vanilla-forward NAS Highlander Scotch.

Speyburn's Bradan Orach is a fun phrase to say and it has a cool meaning. Bradan orach is Gaelic for Golden Salmon, the best sort of salmon there is, and Speyburn is named after the famous river Spey, which is salmon-rich. Founded by John Hopkins more than a century ago, Speyburn offers the authentic Speyside flavor, concocted through tradition and modern know-how. Speyburn is both a wonderful intro to the world of Scotch or a delightful dram for seasoned buffs.

Bradan Orach is a divine vanilla-forward no-age-statement Scotch bottled at 40% and aged in barrels that used to house Bourbon. The nose is incredibly enjoyable, and the flavors of vanilla and honey play a harmonious taste before they bring a long and spicy finish. The Highlander was awarded many times, including with a silver at International Wine & Spirit Competition in 2017.

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 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.
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.
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.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
