Kilchoman Distillery sits nestled amongst the traditional farm buildings of Rockside Farmon the north-west coast of Islay, sheltered beneath the Creag Mhor headland.
Famous as Islay's Farm Distillery, the distillery's barley fields scretch west to the shores of Machir Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Kilchoman is unique in many ways, most notably for their 100% Isaly range, Scotland's only single malt produced from barley both grown and malted on Islay.
This single cask, bottled exclusively for La Maison Du Whisky, was matured for over 10 years in a bourbon barrel previously used by Buffalo Trace. During its 10 years maturation the citrus sweetness and peat smoke character of the 50ppm malt created a bold and smoky Islay whisky.
NOSE: Citrus sweetness, honey followed by waves of intense smokiness.
PALATE: Rounded fruitiness with fresh herbs, mixed spices and peat smoke throughout.
FINISH: Long-lasting herbal smoke and butterscotch smokiness.
