Islay Single Malt Whisky, 'Fino Sherry Matured', Kilchoman Distillery

Kilchoman Distillery was founded in 2005 and is the first distillery to be built on Islay for over 120 years. Kilchoman displays all that is great about the grass-roots traditions of Scotch whisky distilling. In addition to being one of the few distilleries to still practice floor malting, barley is also grown on this family-run farm, making Kilchoman the only distillery to employ all parts of the whisky-making process on site. Kilchoman truly is Islay’s farm distillery—from barley to bottling.

Tasting Notes

If you’re looking for an Islay single malt to put a pep in your step, look no further than this expression aged entirely in Fino sherry butts sourced from Bodegas José y Miguel Martin in Jerez. Kilchoman used 12 sherry butts to create this vatting made from core Kilchoman distillate produced in 2014 and 2016. The Fino sherry casks have created bright, green apple character with floral overtones that gives way to jammy tropical fruit, light citrus underlined with malt and cashew, and a through line of bold peat and fresh seaside salinity. 46% ABV
