Kilchoman 100% Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Kilchoman Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made from Publican barley grown directly on the distillery’s grounds. (Publican barley is more resilient to Islay's harsh weather than traditional strains of barley.) Once the barley has been harvested, it is malted at the distillery's malthouse — Kilchoman is one of just six distilleries in Scotland that continues to malt its own barley — before being dried over a peat flame for ten hours. After the barley has been peated to approximately 20 phenol parts per million, the grains are fermented for three to four days in stainless steel washbacks before being twice distilled through Kilchoman's copper-pot stills.
Kilchoman 100% Islay single malt is exactly what it says it is; 100% Islay, with all parts of the whisky making process, from barley to bottle, completed on site at the Kilchoman farm. The single malt carries quite a distinction, as it is “the only distillery in Scotland to produce single malt in this traditional hand crafted way” (Kilchoman). Produced from barley directly sourced and exclusively grown on the distillery grounds, the peating levels are slightly lighter than the other expressions in the Kilchoman stable, yielding a fresh, floral balance when coupled with the bourbon cask maturation.
100% Islay is aged in a combination of fresh and refill ex Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels. Robin Bignal, Production Manager; “As the bourbon barrel maturation influences the spirit over time it has taken on a real depth of character and complexity to add to the light citrus fruit and peat smoke of the Kilchoman spirit.” This whisky won a Silver Outstanding in the Scotch Single Malt - Islay category at the 2017 International Wine & Spirit Competition. Bottled at a solid 100 proof, the “100% Islay Way.”
