This Kilchoman 100% Islay is exactly what it describes itself to be. Not happy with just being from Islay, this innovative farm distillery do every step of the whisky-making process on the island. Using barley grown on the island, they then mature the spirit in a mixture of ex-bourbon and ex-Oloroso sherry butts. The 11th edition of this single malt, this is free from chill filtration and has a natural colour.
Vanilla ice-cream, dried spices, floral notes and dried fruits all harmonise on the nose. Malty bread, cinnamon, ginger, and baked apples appear on a sweet palate. The finish is rich, with a new twist of peat smoke and orange peel.
