Kilchoman Batch Strength

57% ABV

The newest regular bottling from Kilchoman and it's an absolute stunner. The whisky was matured in a mixture of STR red wine casks, oloroso sherry butts, and ex bourbon barrels. Just a whisper of spring water from their local aquifer is added to bring it down to a still brawny 57% ABV. Red fruits, chocolate fudge and rich smoke characterize this one. Doesn't drink remotely like its high proof but the finish is oily and long. A fantastic dram!

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.
