About Chapter 7 Caol Ila 9 Year Old
With less prominent smoke than some of its Islay neighbours, Caol Ila whisky is different from its neighbours. It's mashing, fermentation regime, stills and the cut points are unique and it produces a fruity malt that is likeable even for those who don't like peat at first. Chapter 7's Malt Chaser was introduced to peaty whiskies by a well aged Caol Ila.
This particular cask comes from Chapter 7's stock of Caol Ila hogsheads that were re-racked into first-fill bourbon casks over four years ago. They cut this whisky to 50.4% alcohol by volume where they think it performs best, and lets out all the aromas. Every now and then you will see a release of Chapter 7 Caol Ila from Chapter 7, as they're are most fond of this 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.
