BLOG POST, NEW RELEASES
100% Islay 5th EditionMay 7, 2015
On the Monday May 4th we released the 5th Editon of our 100% Islay range. The 5th Edition release is a vatting of ex bourbon barrels filled in 2009 and 2010. First released in 2010, the 100% Islay range is only lightly peated compared to the Machir Bay and Loch Gorm.
Anthony, Kilchoman Founder; ‘There is a clear difference between the 100% Islay range and other releases, the lighter peating level and maturation exclusively in ex-bourbon barrels gives the whisky a beautiful fragrance and balance’
‘When we first set out to build Kilchoman the ambition was to produce a single malt from barley grown on the distillery farm to give complete control and traceability, we also wanted to echo how whisky was once made on Islay and across Scotland. We are incredibly proud to continue these traditional practices.’
‘We expect that followers of Kilchoman will enjoy this latest Edition of the 100% Islay, the added maturation time compared to previous releases has given the whisky added depth and balance, we expect it to be a hit’
We hope you all enjoy the latest edition, we look forward to hearing your feedback when we see you!
