About Chapter 7 Whisky's Caol Ila 9 Year Old

Caol Ila whisky is different from its Islay neighbours. The smoke is less prominent, for a start. But it's more than that. Its mashing, fermentation regime, stills and the cut points are unique. Caol Ila produces a fruity malt that even people who don't like peat still like. Chapter 7's Malt Chaser was introduced to peaty whiskies by a well-aged Caol Ila.

This particular cask comes from Chapter 7 Whisky's stock of Caol Ila hogsheads that they re-racked into first-fill bourbon casks over 3 years ago. They cut this whisky to 52.2% alcohol by volume where we think it tastes best. This Caol Ila is a must-try, for peat lovers and haters alike.
