National Scotch Day
"Since Scotch is protected by law, specific guidelines must be followed when making it for it to be labeled as Scotch. Otherwise, it may be an ordinary whisky (or whiskey if it’s made in the United States). First and foremost, Scotch must be made in Scotland. Another requirement includes the grain used in the fermentation process. For Scotch, only malted barley may be used. The Scotch must also be aged in oak barrels for at least three years and have an ABV of less than 94.8%. While most Scotch is made with barley, water, and yeast, other grains can be included, but no fermentation additives, per law.
Scotch whisky dates back to 15th century where a Scottish taxman recorded the spirit in 1494. Since then, Scotch, barley, malt, and grain have been in and out of the shadows. The distilleries or the smugglers either dodged the king’s taxman or organized against him. Scotch was first protected by definition in law in 1933. It was further protected in 1988 with the Scotch Whisky Act.
There are five distinct categories of Scotch whisky including single malt Scotch, single grain Scotch, blended malt Scotch, blended grain Scotch, and blended Scotch."
It is also National Cowboy Day. Cowboys became prominent after the Civil War and their role in American history is well documented. Watch a western move or read a western novel today, maybe while sipping on one of the 5 types of scotch mentioned above.
What is your favorite western movie? What is your favorite type of scotch?
I really liked the re-make of True Grit and The Outlaw Josie Wales. Also Unforgiven with Clint. The Lonesome Dove series is a favorite as is the movie Open Range. One pick for each type of scotch..
Scotch is good! (cowboy action, too)
Abelor, Dahlwinnie and Dalmore 15 are my favorites
I honor this day religiously 365 days a year except in leap years 😂
Old Pulteney 12YO or 17YO; Glenmorangie 12 The Quinta RUBAN; Macallan 12 YO Sherry Barrell Finish
I prefer un-cold filtered, single malt with minimum 46 ABV

Getting the 12 year is even more difficult to find
