The newest of Chapter 7's Whisky series might focus on younger Whisky, but it's definitely no slouch.
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 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.
The Prologue was introduced in 2021 and is the newest of their Whisky series, focusing on younger Spirits that are at the beginning stages of developing the complexity, while still showcasing the characteristics of the distillery and region. It's a small batch blended Malt Whisky from the Highland and Speyside regions. Limited to 6,000 bottles, it's the largest batch Chapter 7 has produced thus far. It might be a smidge more accessible, but it's a proper 98-proof dram nonetheless!
