Chapter 7 Benrinnes 18 Year Old is a rare and special opportunity.

The premiss of Chapter 7 is simple — each cask of Whisky is unique. The wood, age, temperature, location in the rick-house… everything tells its own story. Even large single-malts marry casks in large vats before bottling so that the Master Blander can try to make them all taste the same. The folks at Chapter 7 Whisky think that’s a shame. Chapter 7 is the brain-child of Selim Evin. He thinks that each cask should tell its own unique tale, so he travels to Scotland and Ireland to hand-select single casks from the inventories of the world’s greatest distilleries. Then he custom bottles each one with its own story. How many bottles you ask? Well, until the barrel is empty.

The Benrinnes Distillery has been making fine, Highland Whisky under various names at their site in Arberlour since 1826. There has been a 15 YO, semi-official single malt bottling under the Flora and Fauna label, but aside from that, all production has been in hot demand by some of the finest blends in Scotland. But the good folks at Chapter 7 got their hands on a single cask of Benrinnes Single Malt that had been aging for eighteen years in an ex-Bourbon hogshead. It is bottles at 52.1% ABV and it has been reported that only 267 bottles were produced. If you want one of these rare gems, do not wait.

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.
Whisky or Whiskey? The spelling differs geographically. In Scotland, Japan, and some other parts of the world, distilleries usually spell it Whisky; in Ireland and the USA, they spell it Whiskey.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
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.
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).
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.
