Our trusted trio of Scotch tamers had a special mission for the 25th edition of Deer, Bear & Moose: find a spectacular single-barrel offering perfect for Flaviar's first NFT-equipped release.

They flew to the island of Islay and captured a Spirit typically deemed untamed. Cask #200000127 is the one that caught their attention as they snooped around the warehouse of a Whiskymaker that's been wowing palates since 1815: an ex-Bourbon hogshead that held this mysterious Whisky for twelve years since October 2009.

The island of Islay is shrouded in a mystical mist of smokey peat, so we’ll deliberately hold the distiller’s name close to our chest. True Islay lovers, however, should recognize the character. We think the Trio brought back a gem, and we know you’ll love it.

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
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.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
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.
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).
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.
