About Chapter 7's Chronicle Whisky

Chronicles are small batches from 3-6 casks that we repeat in our anthology over time. The whiskies come from our stocks of carefully selected, re-racked and finished casks. The whisky spent five years in refill bourbon hogsheads before spending a further three years in first fill bourbon barrels. This process carefully layers the ex-bourbon flavour profile on to this whisky, creating a stunning dram.

Our taste has always been for whiskies aged in bourbon casks. With this whisky, we wanted to have a noticeable, but balanced bourbon wood-aged Islay malt. As we will be continuing the series, the next Chronicle may open new horizons with unexpected wood finishes.
