10 Year Old 2016 Kilchoman Club ReleaseNovember 18, 2016
The air is a little colder and the nights are a little longer up on Islay as we head into November. It’s that time of year when Anthony Wills heads into the warehouse to pick something special out for the Kilchoman Club and you won’t be disappointed with what he found!
Lurking at the back of the north warehouse were two casks from our first full year of production in 2006, one first fill oloroso sherry butt and one fresh bourbon barrel. We have vatted these ten year old casks together and bottled them at their natural cask strength (57%). The powerful rich fruits from the sherry cask and the beautiful vanilla and citrus from the bourbon wood have combined with the Kilchoman spirit over the past ten years to produce something pretty special. We hope you agree when having a dram yourself..
This is the first ten year old release we have done from the distillery that is available worldwide and there will be approximately 920 bottles of this Fifth Edition Club Release, exclusively available to Club members. Unfortunately we can’t send to every country but have a look at the link to see where we can ship to (certain US States are unavailable) – http://kilchomandistillery.com/terms-conditions
