Kilchoman Fino Sherry Cask 2023 Limited Edition Islay Single Malt Whisky, 50%

No reviews

10 items left

The 2023 Fino Sherry Cask Matured limited edition is a vatting of 20 Fino Sherry Butts, previously used by Bodega Jose y Miguel Martin (Spain). Kilchoman spirit has matured fully, for a minimum of five years in Fino. During its maturation, the spirit has developed a dry salinity which is balanced with a green fresh fruit influence and elongated delicate peat smoke.

Tasting note from the distillery:

The Fino Sherry maturation works incredibly well with our classic Kilchoman character. The 2023 release elevates the fragrant green apple, stewed fruits and sweet citrus while allowing for the unmistakeable Kilchoman peat smoke to linger on the palate. Fino is another example of sherry casks working together, not against, our Kilchoman spirit 
Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder

 

About the distillery

Founded in 2005, Kilchoman was the first new distillery to be built on Islay in over 124 years. Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder, set out to resurrect the grass roots tradition of farm distilling. Their 100% Islay range represents the revival of those traditions, standing alone as Islay’s only Single Farm Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

200 Tonnes of barley per year are grown on the Kilchoman farm, planted in Spring when Islay's migrating geese can do the least damage. Following harvest, Kilchoman is one of the few distilleries in Scotland still using their very own floor maltings. This gives them greater quality control, and also means only Islay peat is used to smoke the barley. Fermentation takes 85 hours following mashing, after which the sweet, earthy wort is distilled in twice in Kilchomans unique copper pot stills, before maturation entirely in oak casks on the farm. This gives a true taste of Islay, from barley to bottle.

Kilchoman single malts are a distillation of people, passion and place.
