2018 CLUB RELEASENovember 22, 2018
It’s that time of year, the air is cooling, nights are drawing in and Anthony has been selecting casks for the next edition of the Club Release! The Seventh Edition, 2018 release will be a 12 years old bottling of two oloroso sherry casks.
If you aren’t a member then get yourself signed up, it’s free to join and open to all via the Club section of our website. Members get prior notice of upcoming releases, visitor centre discounts and a complimentary dram, however the real bonus is access to our annual Club Release.
Typically, the Club Releases are bottlings of our oldest and rarest stock and this year’s bottling is perhaps the most anticipated ever. We have only released one other 12 year old, an ex-bourbon matured single cask bottled as a distillery exclusive. This will be our first ever 12 year old sherry matured bottling and with big sherry notes, rich dark fruits and sweet tobacco, it certainly doesn’t disappoint.
Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder “The Club Release is a special bottling, I always take great care when selecting these casks and this year I was really torn, these two casks are some of our rarest stock, we simply don’t have many old sherry casks. That said, I believe they are at their peak, the balance is exquisite and as much as I might want to leave these in the warehouse for sentimental reasons, they were too good to overlook.”
Just 1313 individually numbered bottles are available at cask strength, 55.2%, so set a reminder for Wednesday the 28th November, bottles will be on sale exclusively from our website at noon (12:00 GMT) priced at £123.00 (70cl).
