Kilchoman Distillery sits nestled amongst the traditional buildings of Rockside Farm on the north-west coast of Islay. Famous as Islay's Farm Distillery, the distillery's barley fields stretch west to the shores of Machir Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Kilchoman is unique in many ways, most notably for their 100% Islay range, Scotland's only Single Farm Single Malt. Established in 2005, Kilchoman is true to Islay's rich farm distilling heritage, using local peat cut in the traditional way, slowly distilling by hand, maturing in traditional dunnage warehouses, and bottling on-site without colouring or chill-filtration. This Small Batch Releases represent the experimental side of Kilchoman. Each unique batch combines some of their rarest casks to create exclusive bottlings for different countries around the world. Bottled without colouring or chill-filtration the whisky retains the natural character of both Kilchoman and the casks in which it was matured, married together after years of ageing in the Islay warehouses.
20% Pedro Ximenez sherry
10% Oloroso Sherry
This Small Batch Vatting combines bourbon and oloroso sherry matured Kilchoman at 46% ABV with one specially selected Pedro Ximenez sherry hogshead, at natural cask strength. The result is a marriage of classic Kiichoman citrus and peat smoke with added layers of treacle, toffee, and cooked fruits.
