This is the 6th Edition of 100% Islay release and has been produced from barley grown, malted, distilled, matured and bottled at the distillery. It has been matured for over 6 years in a combination of fresh and refil bourbon barrels.
The picturesque Kilchoman distillery sits nestled amongst the traditional farm buildings of Rockside Farm on the North West of Islay. Famous as Islay's Farm Distillery, their barley fields stretch West, sheltered beneath the Cnoc Dubh cliffs, to the shores of Machir Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.
Kilchoman is unique in many ways, most notably for their 100% Islay range, Scotland's only single farm single malt, produced from barley both grown and malted on Islay.
Established in 2005 Kilchoman is true to Islay's rich farm distilling heritage, cutting peat from the island's many ocean soaked peat bogs, slowly distilling by hand, maturing in traditional dunnage warehouses and bottling on site without colouring or chill filtration.
On the nose this is light, fresh and vibrant with soft peat smoke, on the palate it brings fresh and light with citrus and lemon notes with sweetness on the finish.
