Kilchoman 100% Islay 13th Edition

50% ABV - 750 mL

This is the only Single Farm, Single Malt Whisky produced on the island of Islay. All of the barley is grown on the Rockside Farm on the northwest coast of Islay where Kilchoman Distillery is located. The barley is floor malted on site as well. From barley harvested in 2012, 2013 and 2014 and matured for a minimum of 8 years in ex-Bourbon barrels, this annual release "represents the rebirth of farm distilling, where the responsibility for growing and malting barley, is not outsourced but completed on site with skill, care, and attention to detail."

In addition to the citrusy sweetness and peat smoke that is the hallmark of Kilchoman whiskies, this bottling has layers of caramel, vanilla and butterscotch. A Single Malt that is a true expression of a place and time.

About Kilchoman
Kilchoman Distillery was founded by Englishman Anthony Wills in 2005 at the Rockside Farm on the renowned whisky-making island of Islay, Scotland. "Islay's Farm Distillery" produces the only single farm, single malt whisky on the island. They take on the arduous task of floor malting much of their own barley and use peat from bogs near the farm for drying the barley. Their custom designed stills are unusually small which produces a much higher copper contact with the spirit. Their first releases were younger, non-age stated whiskies which was unusual for the time but is now quite common with other producers. Their spirits are characterized by a citrus note and very well integrated peat smoke. At our bar next door, we have carried every single release that was made available to us since the day that we opened in 2011. We were honored to be named a "Comraich" by the distillery. It means :"sanctuary" in Gaelic and the title is bestowed upon establishments that are bastions of Kilchoman whisky enjoyment. They are one of our favorite distilleries on earth and we carry more individual products made there than from any other single producer.
