About Prometheus 26 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky Cache 1
One of the great Titans of Greek mythology Prometheus was renowned for his strength, passion and charisma. Most memorably, he gave man one of earth's greatest gifts: fire. In fact, when an angered Zeus took fire away from man, Prometheus rebelled against the leader of Greek gods and captured a flame from Mount Olympus, carrying it back to man hidden in a fennel sack.
Prometheus 26 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a unique effort spearheaded by Bespoke Spirits and the Glasgow Distillery Co. The idea for Prometheus was born when Glasgow CEO Liam Hughes chanced upon an incredible batch of whisky combining the the smoky influence of peated barley with the zesty and floral notes typical of Speyside. Hughes decided to bottle the whisky but keep its origins a secret. We do know, however, that the amazing whisky is a reborn single malt, aged 26 years and finished in hand-crafted sherry casks (it’s rumored the whisky comes from Macallan… but you didn’t hear it from us!).
Bottled at 94 proof, Prometheus 26 Year Old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky has a rich amber color and aroma of butterscotch, warm heather, orange peel and smoky charcoal. The palate is absolutely dazzling, with notes of creme brulee, Madagascan vanilla and dark chocolate, fruitcake, honey and roasted nuts, and leads to a restrained yet elegant finish.

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
