About Chapter 7 Whisky's Caol Ila 8 Year Old

With less prominent smoke than some of its Islay neighbours, Caol Ila whisky is different from its neighbours. Its mashing, fermentation regime, stills and 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 Islay whiskies by a well-aged Caol Ila.

This particular cask comes from a refill bourbon hogshead. Chapter 7 Whisky particularly wanted to bottle this cask in the same batch with a first-fill bourbon cask from Caol Ila to give you a different dimension. They cut this whisky to 51.4% alcohol by volume where they think it performs best and lets out all the aromas.

Meet The Founder

Selim Evin

Selim Evin's love affair with whisky began as a teenager when he accompanied his grandfather on a trip to Scotland. Visiting various distilleries, he was fascinated by both the art of whisky making and the stories behind the whiskies. This early experience left an indelible mark on him, igniting a passion that would later earn him the nickname "Malt Chaser."

In 2013, he made the bold decision to leave a successful business behind and pursue his true calling. He founded Chapter 7, an independent bottler that combined his passion for whisky with his love for literature. The name "Chapter 7" was inspired by the seven ages of man from Shakespeare's works. It symbolises the stages of life that whisky goes through, each stage telling a different story.

Selim's curiosity, commitment to quality, and pursuit of unique whiskies shine through all his whiskies.
