Kilchoman 100% Islay 10th Edition, 50%Kilchoman
This is the 10th release of this much-loved whisky from farm distillery Kilchoman, which was founded in 2005 on Islay and already made big impressions.
Kilchoman stands out as a distillery which prioritises the provenance and quality of its raw materials, and this expression uses barley which was exclusively grown on a select few farms on Islay.
Comprising a limited vatting of 39 ex-bourbon and 2 Oloroso sherry casks and made with a lighter peated barley, this is a more gentle Islay beast with notes of cinnamon, prunes and pear tart with a backdrop of floral and citrussy smoke.
Aged for a minimum of 9 years and bottled at a powerful 50%, this is a staple Islay single malt that lets Kilchoman's unique spirit character really shine.
