Port Cask Matured ReleaseAugust 17, 2014
At the end of August we will release our first ever Port Cask Matured whisky, just 1000 cases (6) of the special edition release will be bottled.
The Port Cask Matured release, the first of its kind from the distillery, is fully matured in ex Ruby Port casks allowing for the full influence of the port casks to be imparted into the whisky. The Port Cask Matured release is non chill-filtered and is natural colour. It is bottled at 55% ABV and will be available on 5th September from the distillery shop and other worldwide markets.
The Port Cask Matured has a mahogany colour with a touch of ruby. The nose is powerful with lemon and citrus notes and the palate has smoke right away along with sweet, nutty milk chocolate character. There is a heavy textured finish which drifts away to dry smoke with oakiness.
Due to the high interest and limited number of bottles this will be limited to one bottle per person from the Kilchoman shop – RRP £68
