9 great reads from CNET this week: Scotch whisky, NASA’s Lucy, ransomware and more

The makers of Scotch are accustomed to working on long timelines, what with single malts that’ll age in casks for 12 or 18 years or more. But they have to keep an eye on today as well, given changing tastes in cocktails and a fiercely competitive market for spirits.

CNET’s Katie Collins offers a generous pour of fine writing to introduce you to what’s going on in Scotland, accompanied by a tasty sampler of spectacular photos from our Andy Hoyle.
