A classic Islay Single Malt profile from a secret distillery, bottled strong and pure..

The premiss 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.

Chapter 7 Chronicle 8 Year Old 2011 is supposed to be a "Secret." And the folks at Chapter 7 will tell us a TON of info about these casks… everything EXCEPT the source distillery. For example, they’ll tell us that this Chronicle release is comprised of three ex-Bourbon casks that were distilled in 2011, aged five years, then vatted, and re-racked to age another three years for a total of eight. But a handful of folks have tasted a drop or two and we all have our guesses. The most common guess is that the casks come from the Caol Ila Distillery, but that’s just an educated guess. What really matters is the taste, and if you love Islay drams you WILL love this one a LOT at 49.2% ABV.

Smartass Corner:
Chapter 7 has organized their releases into three categories. "Monologues" are single cask releases with a strictly limited quantity. "Anecdotes" are small batch or select blends that cannot be reproduced. Finally, "Chronicles" are small batch editions that are reproducible in limited releases.

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.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Pale Gold

Nose / Aroma / Smell
On the nose you’ll find rich and creamy notes of vanilla flan, warm smoke, briny peat, and candied lemons.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The taste profile reminds us of BBQ’d fruit roasted on an outdoor grill — oranges and pineapples — with warm vanilla fudge, driftwood campfire, and a bit of lemon honey.

The finish is long with plenty of wood and over-toasted s’mores.
Ratings & Reviews
Great whisky with just the right amount of peat. Very fruity and candied mouth. Love it...
Have not tried it yet but label is all bubbly and scraped looks cheap
This was an unique whisky that I highly recommend. I certainly would like to buy another Bottle.
