DISTILLERY NEWS, NEW RELEASES
KILCHOMAN CLUB RELEASE – SIXTH EDITIONNovember 8, 2017
Whilst we hope that you continue to enjoy our 2017 limited editions well into the festive period, we are delighted to say that we’ve saved something special for December. The 6th Edition Club Release will be available exclusively to Club Members from noon (GMT) on Wednesday the 6th of December.
This year’s club release is a cask strength (57.4%) vatting of five ten-year-old bourbon barrels, all distilled 01/11/2007, bottled 20/11/2017. The casks were individually selected by Kilchoman Founder Anthony Wills and represent his idea of the perfect Kilchoman 10-year-old.
“For me personally, Kilchoman is best when matured in fresh bourbon barrels, the lighter influence of the American oak makes for a more harmonious marriage between cask and spirit. This allows for Kilchoman’s natural floral citrus character to develop and integrate with that of the bourbon oak flavours”
These casks are like our crown jewels, we have few casks over ten years old so need to be very selective with when they are bottled. These being fresh barrels, are at their peak now, the balance is fantastic and they are some of the very best Kilchoman casks I’ve tasted’
The release of just 1241 bottles is exclusively available to Kilchoman Club members via the Kilchoman website, priced at £99.00 per bottle (70cl). Due to the number of bottles, members are limited to one bottle per person, sorry!
Set a reminder for Wednesday and once you have signed in you will see the Club Release image in your members homepage. Alternatively, sign in, click on ‘whisky shop’ then ‘club releases’.
Those who have purchased a Club release in the past will know that the volume of people on the website can cause a few issues and the page to be very slow at times. We have done what we can to make sure this is avoided but please be patient and once the initial traffic clears you will be able to freely navigate the website.
Whilst we wish we could ship the Club Release to all countries around the world, unfortunately we are limited to those detailed here.
Casks – First Fill v Refill
A common talking point in the Scotch Single Malt Industry is the age of the cask being used for maturation alongside how many uses that particular cask has had over the span of its life. To become Single Malt whisky, new make spirit must be filled into and matured in…September 8, 2022
