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. The 12th release in the Monologue series comes from the Islay Caol Ila distillery. Known to be less smoky than its Islay neighbors, the distillery employs different mashing and fermenting practices as well as stills, producing fruitier single malts that are a great entry point into the world of peated whisky, as well as suiting palates that prefer their peat notes on the subtle side. This expression comes from Chapter 7's hogsheads that were re-racked into first-fill bourbon casks. Distilled in 2011, this hogshead yielded 297 bottles of the 9-year-old spirit, cut down to 100.8 proof.
