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 5 years in Cognac hogshead previously used by Ferrand. During its 5 years maturation the citrus sweetness and peat smoke character of 50ppm malt created an elegant and rich Islay whisky.
NOSE: The citrus freshness of Kilchoman meets yellow fruits and mixed spices.
PALATE: Wines poached pears with vanilla, followed by wood spices and hints of tobacco smokiness.
FINISH: Long and round with tobacco smokiness.
