Re: Whisky

One of the bottles (Stronachy 12) that my local liquor shop guy had me try has been described by some websites as "a 'bastard' bottling better than some semi-official and independent bottlings of Benrinnes."

I'm not that familiar with how the industry ends up working, but does this essentially mean that some distillery's that produce bottles of their own somehow bottle the same whiskey (?) under a different brand? What's the purpose?

Also got myself a bottle of Balvenie 15 Single Barrel which while more aggressive than I tend to prefer, is really complex and has a very nice finish.
