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.
