Kilchoman 2nd Edition 100% Islay Single Malt Scotch

  by    0   0

Kilchoman is Islay’s youngest distillery being built in 2005. It is also a farm distillery and one of the smallest in all of Scotland. They have a grain Silo on their farm and when it is filled they create a special edition 100% Islay Edition. It has been produced from barley grown, malted, distilled, matured, and bottled at the farm distillery (a rare thing to find these days). It has been aged in a combination of refilled Bourbon barrels from Buffalo Trace and Oloroso Sherry Butts from Miquel Martin in Spain. It is un-chill filtered and bottled at 50% capturing all its natural elements perfectly. This Scotch is perfectly balanced and complex for its young age. Initially comes on malty and pear-like, a moderate smokiness flows through the mid palate. Still softer on the smoke than most of its Islay neighbors. Finish is long and fresh.  It reminds me of the Springbank Local Barley 1966. It mentally takes you back in time when Scotch was made this way.  $79.98
