A deep and rich Blair Athol.

The premise of Chapter 7 Whisky is simple — each cask of Whisky is unique. The wood, age, temperature, its location in the rick-house… everything tells its own story. Large Scotch producers marry casks in large vats before bottling so that the master blender 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.

Built in 1798 in Pitlorchy, Blair Athol is known for its nutty character that results from short fermentation and cloudy worts. They produce malts for Diageo, mostly Bell’s, and the majority of their juice ends up in Bourbon barrels. Chapter 7 Monologue 12 Year Old Blair Athol 2009 Bourbon Cask has a deep, rich, malt loaf character. A Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky, it brings forward orange juice, natural vanilla, raisins, and maize bread on the layered palate. Only 299 bottles were made of this non-chill filtered beauty.

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.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Because Blair Athol is so important to the history and actual Whisky of Bell's blended Scotch, it is referred to as "the spiritual home" of Bell's in their literature.
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.
