Speyside Scotch that gives best tang for your buck
 
The village of Tomintoul lives and breathes Whisky. A local minister in 1797 wrote that there were 37 families and no industry - all of them sold and drank Whisky. The Tomintoul Distillery was built in 1964 and they use old-school iron-clad techniques to create their "gentle dram". Robert Fleming, Tomintoul's Master Distiller is the fourth generation in his Whisky-making family. His secret is a combo of pure spring water from the Ballantruan Spring, the barley that's usually not peated - except for this very expression, the fresh air, and oak wood casks.
 
The annual release of a deeply smoky Peaty Tang is a lower proof replacement for Tomintoul's Old Ballantruan. For two weeks out of the year, Tomintoul Distillery makes a heavily peated Whisky and this particular bottle is a Single Malt from a blend of their 5-year-old peated Whisky and their 8-year-old unpeated one. It's a balanced and complex Spirit that enjoys all the benefits of its peaty soul: it may be a young'un, but it's more intriguing than some of the older Whiskies. Its sweetness and smokiness impressed Jim Murray as well: he gave it 94 points in 2012.

90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
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.
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.
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.
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.
