Live Whisky Tasting at HomeMarch 18, 2021
Join us for another ‘Live Tasting’ on Thursday 8th April at 7pm Islay Time.
Taste along with your Kilchoman Tasting Glass as we take you through two of our Core Range whiskies and two 2021 Pre-Release samples, explaining how we make each whisky and what unique character and flavours can be found in each dram. Click here to order your whisky tasting packs from our online shop. (*Please note the image isn’t the exact whiskies in the 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.
PX Sherry Matured – 47.3% (20ml) – This limited edition is a vatting of 33 casks, 9 fully matured in Pedro Ximénez sherry casks and 24 finished in PX casks for between 12 and 18 months.
Ruby Port Single Cask Finish – 55.1% (20ml) – This single cask has been matured in a fresh Bourbon Barrel for over six years before being finished in a Ruby Port quarter cask for a year.
Why not pair your drams with some delicious chocolate? Two of the COCO chocolate bars that we paired with our core range whiskies at the end of last year are now available to order from our online shop. The Atlantic sea salt and lime milk chocolate pairs perfectly with our Machir Bay whisky and the spiciness from the nutmeg, allspice and cloves of the Haggis dark chocolate bar works beautifully with the sherry cask influence of Sanaig.
Even if you don’t manage to get a tasting pack, please still pour yourself a dram, join us and interact with the guys in the comments section during the tasting. Feel free to also ask any and all questions you want! We will be live on our Facebook page and Youtube Channel.
Loch Gorm 2021 Edition
The hotly anticipated Loch Gorm is once again ready for its annual release. Named after Islay’s largest freshwater loch neighbouring the distillery, Loch Gorm is the only annual limited edition matured entirely in oloroso sherry casks.
