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 6 years in a Rum cask previously used by Caroni. During its 6 years maturation the citrus sweetness and peat smoke character of the 50ppm malt created a fun and interesting dram with tropical notes and well integrated peat.
NOSE: Tropical with ripe banana and barbequed pineapple, BBQ smokyness and vanilla pods.
PALATE: Rum hints leave spaces for citrus and vanilla sweetness along with wood spices and well integrated peat smoke.
FINISH: Spicy with tobacco smokiness.
