About Chapter 7 Monologue 31 Year Old Tormore 1990 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.
Chapter 7 has three series of expressions: Monologue, Anecdote, and Chronicle. The first are unique single casks, the second once-in-a-lifetime small batches or married atypical whiskies, the third has their aging reserves. This release is the 15th in the Monologue series. Distilled in 1990 at the Tormore distillery, it's a mature Speyside whisky at 31 years of age ― the oldest release from Chapter 7 yet. A part of the Chivas Brothers portfolio, Tormore single malt bottlings were few and far between. This is the second bottling of a Tormore single malt by Chapter 7, the first being a 17-year-old that received a Liquid Gold Award from the Whiskey Bible. Matured in a first-fill bourbon barrel that yielded 239 bottles, the expression was bottled at 102.4 proof.

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.
