About the Distillery:
Kilchoman Distillery was founded in 2005 and is the first distillery to be built on Islay for over 120 years. It is a farm distillery and a proportion of the barley used in production is grown and malted at the distillery. Kilchoman displays all that is great about the grass-roots traditions of Scotch whisky distilling. As well as being one of only a handful of distilleries still practicing floor malting, barley is also grown on the farm, making Kilchoman the only distillery to complete all parts of the whisky making process on site. Kilchoman truly is Islay’s farm distillery – from barley to bottling.
Bourbon Influenced Batch (9-Year Maturation - Wheated Bourbon Barrels):
This unique release is a collaborative project between Kilchoman and ImpEx. It's a tribute to the Bottled-in-Bond legacy of Bourbon in the US, a nod to the journey of our wheated bourbon barrels that travel from KY to Islay to mature Kilchoman before returning to the US as single malt Scotch. A true testament to the best of both American and Scotch whisk(e)y.
The Kilchoman B.I.B. Small Batch is a vatting of five ex-wheated bourbon barrels distilled in Spring 2012, bottled in Spring 2021.
- Nose - Citrus, rich spices, caramel sweetness, and light peat smoke.
- Palate - Vanilla and baked apples with stoned fruit and waves of Christmas spices.
- Finish - Malt, honey, and maritime smoke with layers of cooked fruits and cinnamon.
