About Chapter 7's Chronicle Whisky

Chronicles are small batches from 3-6 casks that Chapter 7 Whisky repeat in their anthology over time. The whiskies come from their 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.

Chapter 7's taste has always been for whiskies aged in bourbon casks. With this whisky, they wanted to have a noticeable, but balanced bourbon wood-aged Islay malt. As they will be continuing the series, the next Chronicle may open new horizons with unexpected wood finishes. 

This release won a Gold Medal at The Independent Bottlers Challenge 2020. And we can see why. It's superb.

What 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. 

Which couriers do you use?

In the UK we use Royal Mail, Parcelforce and APC. US orders are sent via UPS. International orders use FedEx and DHL.
