As we near our 10th anniversary next month, we have very exciting plans in the works, the first of which is this incredibly special exclusive release, selected and bottled to commemorate our upcoming birthday. Produced at one of our favourite distilleries, and one that has been a part of our whisky journey over the years as a similarly younger, passionate and proudly independent whisky company.
An exclusive single cask, cask strength release from Kilchoman on Islay. Distilled on the 3rd of May 2012, matured for over 7 years in a fresh bourbon barrel then finished for over 2 years in an ex-Calvados (apple/pear brandy from France) cask, and bottled just a few months ago on the 6th of May 2022. Only 222 bottles were produced. Non-chillfiltered, naturally coloured and bottled at a cask strength of 54%. (Bottle size 750ml)
Nose: Applewood, sweet peat smokey, apple crumble pastry and a gentle spice.
Palate: Juicy mouthfeel with an apple and pear sweetness (from the Calvados cask), while the Kilchoman peat bring ash and a lovely sootiness, followed with vanilla and freshly baked apple Danishes.
Finish: Long warm, rich and peaty with lingering smoke. Very moreish!
