About Chapter 7 Whisky's Williamson 9 Year Old Blended Malt
Williamson is a tea-spooned malt. But what is tea-spooning? Sometimes distilleries don't want their brand names an independent bottler's label. So, they add a teaspoon of malt whisky from another distillery and make the whisky a 'blend'. That way, the independent bottler can't use their trademark. In the whisky trade, tea-spooned malts have distinct names like 'Williamson'. People know where the whisky is from, they can't put the name on the bottle.

Chapter 7 Whisky always wanted to bottle a Williamson cask, and they were thrilled with this one. This is a powerful whisky that reflects the unedited character of Laphroaig distillery.

What you need to know about taxes
All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.
UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.
We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.
For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs.
