(92°) Themalt was aged for three years in bourbon casks and matured in Oloroso sherry butts
for five months. Presents old-fashioned aromas of peat smoke with slight medicinal
undertones of dried fruit and iodine, the texture is rich and slightly oily. On the palate is a
complex array of flavors: toffee, apple, caramel, golden raisin and hints of licorice root. The
smoky and peaty components return on the long but clean finish.
Founded in 2005, Kilchoman is leading the revival of farm distilling on the Isle of Islay, and is the
first new distillery since 1881. One of the smallest distilleries in Scotland, Kilchoman grows
their own barley and is just one of six distilleries to continue the tradition of floor malting. In
order to maximize flavor and texture, these single malt whiskeys are bottled at natural color
and non chill-filtered.
|Established in 2005, Kilchoman (pronounced Kilhoman) is one of the smallest distilleries in Scotland. Based on a farm on the rugged west coast of Islay, Kilchoman is the first distillery to be built on the Island for 125 years. Kilchoman gives everyone the chance to see what is best about the grass-roots traditions of malt distilling.
As well as being one of only a handful of distilleries still practicing floor malting, we also grow our own barley at the distillery, completing all parts of the production process at the distillery - from barley to bottling.
