The Whiskey Hybrid.

Ladies, gents and connoisseurs of all things good,... there’s a new Whiskey collective in town that’s set to surprise and please our Whiskey senses and that it does. Whiskey Union proclaim themselves as a creative collective of Whiskey makers, visionaries and hedonists in pursuit of unconventional blends and extraordinary flavor sensations. While the established brands craft the Bentleys and the Jaguars of Whiskey—which is all fine and dandy—the fellas at Whiskey Union choose to break with convention, experiment with flavor and tread on the sporty side of things; they manufacture well-tuned Ferraris, so to speak, to keep your taste buds on the edge and your belly humming.
 
Huxley is the third and so far the most unconventional offering of the Whiskey Union, the other two being Smoky Goat and Boxing Hares. This is a pioneering blended Whiskey drawing on the finest drams from across the globe. So, are you ready to plunge into the unknown? To tread where no taste bud has tread before? To have a brief parley with the mysterious and the wild? To taste the whole world? You’re but a sip away… Huxley—named after a famous Evolutionist—is truly a magnificent beast, a hybrid Blend of Scotch, Canadian and American Whiskey.
 
The mix and and balance of the most prominent and recognizable characteristics of Scotch Whisky (grassy and lemony notes, a whiff of smoke), Canadian Whisky (candied fruit flavors, vanilla and ginger notes) and American Whiskey (buttery caramel sweetness and toasty spice) is a true testament to the glorious evolution of Whisk(e)y making and its taste.
 
This is a truly interesting, boundary-crossing product that is intended for the new generation of more open-minded and adventurous Whisk(e)y lovers.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Huxley Rare Genus Whiskey and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
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.
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
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 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).
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
