Tullibardine 20 Year is a pure, perfectly aged, unadulterated bottle of Highland single-malt love. 

If we set out to find the oldest brewing and distilling spot in Scotland, Tullibardine would definitely be in the running. Back in the 15th century, King James IVa young, strapping lad—made a stop at the local brewery here on the way to his coronation. Heck, wouldn't you? This is recorded as the first "official" purchase of beer in kingdom (though we think it fair to say that there were quite a few "unofficial" purchases being made at the time). The name Tullibardine means "vantage point" in Gaelic and originates from a little medieval chapel, set up in 1446 near the distillery. 
 
The old brewery was transformed into a distillery back in about 1946 and has become a solid maker of single-malt Whisky. They produce their signature 10-year, several finished "double-wood" Whiskies, and some older limited editions. 

The formula for producing Tullibardine 20 Year comes right out of the basics. They take their fine Highland single-malt spirit, place it gently into first-fill ex-Bourbon casks … and then wait 20 years. Seems so simple, right? I mean, why doesn’t everyone do it? 
 
While perfect distillation is an art—and we take nothing away from those master craftsman, God love ‘em! But these days the hardest part of making a great Whisky can be getting away from all of the marketing flacks and optimization Nazis who want to maximize volume and increase storage efficiency. Tullibardine 20 Year Old does exactly that… It’s a pure, perfectly aged, unadulterated bottle of Highland single-malt love.

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.
Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
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.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
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.
