Fresh Release From Islay’s Newest Distillery
Be One of the First to Taste the Kilchoman 100% Islay Eighth Edition
The Kilchoman Distillery is Islay’s newest and the first to be built on the island in 124 years. Whisky production began at the distillery in 2005 and they have since released several hugely popular editions of their 100% Islay single malt. This particular bottle is the eighth edition and, in our humble opinion, it’s the best yet.
As the name suggests, the whisky was made entirely with ingredients sourced on Islay, a feat that’s not easy to achieve. Before bottling, 23 ex-Bourbon barrels were vatted with seven ex-Sherry butts and the results are a tasty and honest Islay dram.
Fresh fruit, cinnamon and a little sherry combine with creamy chocolate notes and this is all topped of with a whiff of peat smoke. It’s a remarkable whisky from Islay’s newest distillery and makes us extremely excited about their future releases.
