About Chapter 7 Whisky's Anecdote 24 Year Old Blended Malt
Anecdotes are Chapter 7's short whisky anthology stories. They are one-off, unique and rare. This whisky's story began when four sensational casks arrived in Chapter 7's warehouse. They selected two of them to make their first Anecdote release.
This blended malt is 17% Laphroaig and 20% Highland Park. The other of 63% comes from Speyside's famous distilleries. But they're a secret. We can't tell you which they are. But they're fantastic.
The whiskies married in bourbon casks for 24 years. The barrels provided fruitiness, a touch of maritime notes and subtle peat.
