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.
