One of 258 bottles of this rare gem from 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. This makes Chapter 7 Monologue 12 Year Old Blair Athol 2009 Wine Cask all the more special. The cask used for ageing is thought to have been a 2nd or a 3rd fill, which makes the result super complex. With barley syrup, preserved fruits, muesli, fruit cereals, citrons, chalk, and lemon zest on the palate, this non-chill filtered beauty is a rare gem.

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.
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.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
The distillery gets its water from a picturesque stream that runs right by the still house, called Allt Dour Burn. In Gaelic, this translates as "Stream of the Otter", which is why the Flora and Fauna release has a drawing of an otter on the label.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
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.
