Kilchoman Single Malt Scotch Whisky Sherry Cask 2006
Distilled in 2006, this whisky is drawn from among the oldest casks maturing at Kilchoman Distillery.
Situated along a rugged farm on the western coast of Islay, Kilochman Distillery was founded in 2005 and is the first new distillery on Islay in over 125 years. "When we first started work on Kilchoman in 2003," says Anthony Wills, the distillery's founder, "the ambition was to build a distillery that was true to the traditions of distilling on Islay — small farm distillers where every part of the whisky making process was done on site and I think we have managed to do just that." Kilchoman Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made from fresh barley, which is harvested and then malted at the distillery's malthouse (Kilchoman is one of just six distilleries in Scotland that continues to malt its own barley). Once the barley has been malted, it is dried over a peat flame for ten hours. This drying process contributes a smoky, iodine-like flavor to the whisky. After the barley has been dried, it is fermented for three to four days in stainless steel washbacks before being twice distilled through Kilchoman's two copper-pot stills. Kilchoman Single Malt Scotch Whisky Sherry Cask 2006 is among the oldest casks at the distillery. The whisky was distilled in 2006 and matured in a refill sherry butt before being bottled at cask strength in 2011. As a result, the whisky has a rich, copper color along with an aroma of stone fruits, fresh barley and dark spices. The aroma gives way to notes of soft peat, fruit cake, brown sugar, cloves, ginger and cardamom on the palate, and leads to a smooth, well-balanced finish. Only a handful of bottles of this whisky are available. Pick one up today!
