Taste the Islay sea breeze in this limited-edition single cask.

Chapter 7 Whisky operates on one simple premise — 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 brainchild 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.

Like all Chapter 7 Monologue releases, this one is also a single cask. And no, we don’t mean a series of single casks, but just one single cask of a stunning Single Malt from the revered Caol Ila distillery on the isle of Islay. It was distilled in 2012 and aged in a single Bourbon hogshead cask before it was bottled in 2021. Single cask means not very many bottles were yielded; to be precise, there were only 301 bottles produced of the fruity, smoky and salty Chapter 7 Monologue 8 Year Old Caol Ila 2012. If you hurry, there might still be one left for you.

Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
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.
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.
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.
Caol Ila is named after the body of water it sits on. Its name translates from Gaelic as "Strait of Islay."
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).
