The Flora and Fauna range by Diageo consists of bottlings from 26 different active and closed distilleries. This is not only a collector's wet dream, but a real Holy Grail for every malthead's bucket list.
 
Aultmore 12 Year Old Flora and Fauna: a Speyside masterpiece that was used almost only in blends—excluding these bottles of this 12 year old expression.  
 
Balmenach 12 Year Old Flora and Fauna: Balmenach distillery closed its doors back in 1993 and this Speyside sweetness is one of the only editions available to this date.
 
Benrinnes 15 Year Old Flora and Fauna: a triple distilled 15 year old Speyside Whisky hailing from Benrinnes distillery.

Dog Dogson's Smartass corner
Character Dogson
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.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
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.
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.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
