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.

Single Cask Whisky from Independent Bottler Chapter 7

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.
