Kilchoman Sauternes Cask Matured (D.2011, B.2016) / 50% – The Kilchoman brand debuted in September 2009 and received excellent reviews. In 2015 the brand global sales for the first time ever reached 200 000 bottles and supply cannot meet customer’s demand. In recent years Kilchoman has been experimenting with various types of wood for full and finishing maturation. Here we have a very interesting expression from 2016, a rare example of heavily peated whisky aged entirely (in that case 5 years) in ex-Sauternes casks. The whisky was bottled without chill-filtration at 50% abv with an outrun of 6000 bottles.
Nose: smoky and sweet, apples, pears, peaches, honey, butterscotch, breakfast cereals, hints of cinnamon and tobacco.
Palate: smoky and fruity with distinctive spicy notes, peaches, pears, bananas, milk chocolate, buttered toast, licorice, lemon pepper and just a pinch of salt.
Finish: long, peat smoke, orchard fruits and a whiff of sea breeze.
