Christmas Live TastingDecember 3, 2020
Join us for a ‘Christmas Live Tasting’ on Monday 28th December at 6pm UK time.
Taste along with your Kilchoman Tasting Glass as we take you through the range of whiskies, explaining how we make each whisky and what unique character and flavours can be found in each dram. This Christmas edition of the tasting pack contains two of our Core Range whiskies, Machir Bay and Sanaig, as well as two special limited bottlings, the 2020 Club Release and a Pedro Ximénez Single Cask Finish. Click here to order your tasting pack.
Machir Bay – 46% (20ml) – Our signature peated single malt is a vatting of Kilchoman matured in a high proportion of bourbon casks with a small sherry cask influence.
Sanaig – 46% (20ml) – Although also matured in both sherry and bourbon casks, Sanaig has a high proportion of oloroso influence, giving a vastly different character to the whisky.
2020 Club Release, Ninth Edition – 56.2% (20ml) – Released in November, this annual release is exclusively available for Kilchoman Club members and is a vatting of four fresh oloroso sherry hogsheads distilled in August 2012, bottled at cask strength. These rare casks contained whisky distilled from unpeated Kilchoman 100% Islay malt.
Pedro Ximénez Single Cask Finish – 55.4% (20ml) – This single cask has been matured in a fresh bourbon barrel for over seven years before being finished in a Pedro Ximénez sherry hogshead for four months.
