Kilchoman Port Cask Matured (2018 Edition) /50% – Kilchoman Distillery takes its name from the small settlement located on the western side of Islay. Established in 2005 it is the first distillery to be built on the island of Islay in 124 years. The distillery has its own maltings and roughly 25% of barley requirement is coming from the surrounding fields. Demand for Kilchoman single malt exceeds supply and Anthony Wills, the distillery owner, started expansion in 2018. Planned addition of two pot stills and six washbacks will double the distilling capacity to 450,000 liters of spirit per annum. Kilchoman Port Cask Matured released in July 2018 is a vatting of 30 ruby port hogsheads filled in 2014. The whisky is bottled at 50% abv without chill-filtration. Only 10,000 bottles were produced.
