100% Islay 12th EditionSeptember 5, 2022
The 100% Islay 12th Edition is available from this week. This release was distilled from our 2011, 2012 and 2013 barley harvests, consisting of publican barley variety, then matured in 29 bourbon barrels and 6 oloroso sherry butts for a minimum of 8 years.
From our inception, the 100% Islay range, Islay’s only Single Farm Single Malt, was our reason for being. It represents the revival of traditional farm distilling; growing our own barley before malting, distilling, maturing and bottling every bottle of our 100% Islay range on site.
“It’s a lovely 100% Islay, rich and fruity on the nose then lots of citrus sweetness and tropical fruit on the palate with waves of peat smoke coming through on the finish,”
ANTHONY WILLS, KILCHOMAN FOUNDER
This year we have grown barley on a total of 138 acres. The harvest has begun and we are hoping for good weather to get this finished over the next week – we’ll keep you updated on our progress through our social media channels.
The 100% Islay 12th Edition will be available from Kilchoman stockists around the world from this week. Please click here for more information about where to find a bottle.
