Islay Single Malt Whisky, 2008 Vintage, Kilchoman Distillery

Anthony Wills and his wife, Kathy, created Kilchoman from a collection of derelict farm buildings in 2005, and in doing so, established the first new distillery on Islay in over 124 years. Their passion for whisky has transformed Kilchoman from a dream into a celebrated reality. The small team at this farm distillery controls as many aspects of the production process as possible, from growing their own barley, to floor malting the grain on site, to operating the stills by hand. Their resulting Single Malt Whiskies have become highly-prized ambassadors of this next generation of Islay producers.

Tasting Notes

Kilchoman’s vintage releases are created with the influence of specially selected fresh and refill Bourbon casks—some of the oldest casks the distillery has maturing. Being matured exclusively in Bourbon barrels gives these releases powerful peat-smoked fruit on the nose and rich butterscotch and clove sweetness on the palate. The 2008 release was aged for seven years.
