About Chapter 7 Monologue 24 Year Old Glen Grant 1998 Scotch Whisky
Chapter 7 Whisky is an Independent bottler that was founded in 2014 by Selim Evin with the goal of seeking out extraordinary casks from Scottish as well as Irish lesser known distilleries. With a name inspired by literature ― Shakespeare's As You Like It comedy, to be exact ― and Evin's malt-chasing expertise, the company soon began racking up the most prestigious awards, with their first 4 single malts averaging 91.6 points in Jim Murray's Whisky Bible. Since then they have expanded from Scotch single malts to Irish ones, as well as single grain and blended malt Scotches, with most releases being cask strength and none of them employing chill filtering or coloring.
Evin lets lesser-known distilleries and their casks take the spotlight, revealing hidden gems with exceptional quality and character. With a team of whisky experts, the final selection is the product of collaborations with several different suppliers, service providers, and trade partners. Chapter 7 has three series of expressions: Monologue, Anecdote, and Prologue. The first are unique single casks, the second once-in-a-lifetime small batches or married atypical whiskies, the third consists of younger malts.
The 20th release in the Monologue series comes from Glen Grant, a Speyside distillery that was founded in 1840 by brothers John and James Grant. The distillery is known for using crisp Scottish barley, much of it still harvested from the same Morayshire fields that John and James Grant used nearly two centuries ago. Each of the Glen Grant stills is equipped with a purifier — Glen Grant is the only distillery in Scotland to use purifiers in both distillations — results in whisky that has a signature fresh and malty flavor. This expression is a particularly well-aged one, having spent 24 years in the single bourbon hogshead. Distilled in 1998 and bottled in 2022, it's a light yet complex and layered whisky that was bottled at 102.2 proof without added coloring and chill-filtration.

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
