About Chapter 7 Whisky's Tormore 31 Year Old 

Tormore is a relatively recent distillery with its impressive buildings located in Grantown-on-Spey in Speyside, and belongs to Chivas Brothers. Although it began to be bottled as a single malt soon after it became part of the Chivas Brothers portfolio, it has never received significant backing, although two bottlings specifically for the French market in 2014 suggests that this may change.

Chapter 7 Whisky has already bottled a Tormore 17 year old that received a Liquid Gold Award from the Whisky Bible back in 2017. This cask is significant as it is the oldest single malt they've ever bottled. It is from a first fill bourbon barrel and they have managed to squeeze only 239 bottles from this magnificent cask.

What you need to know 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.
