Chapter 7 Monologue 2008 Allt-A-Bhainne 12 Year Old Scotch Whisky
Allt-a-Bhainne is another workhorse for Chivas. Not bottled as a single malt generally, it's respected for it's solid reliable Speyside character. Chapter 7 has been watching over this cask since 2016. After examining the maturation carefully they decided to give this classicly fruity malt a twist by finishing it in an ex-Caol Ila first fill bourbon casks. The barrel turned out 298 bottles. Distilled 10/2008 bottled 04/2021. No chill-filtration and no added colouring.
The nose is fruity and floral with honey, candied orange, and a hint of smoke on the nose. The palate has butterscotch, peach, honey, gingerbread, and cinnamon spice notes. The long finish is sweet with a touch of citrus and spice.
