Oh yes, cask strength Kilchoman! Exciting stuff. This 5 year old single malt Scotch whisky from Islay's farm distillery came from 35 ex-bourbon barrels which were filled in 2009 and opened in 2014, producing 9,200 bottles. It has been bottled at a natural cask strength of 59.2% ABV, and without any chill-filtration. Gloriously intense with plenty of ripe fruit and a neat core of peat smoke.
Caramel coated apples, smoky barley, peppercorns.
Apricot, more apples, layers of robust peat smoke.
Loads of vanilla with a little bit of tropical fruit tucked away. An elegant waft of peat appears later on.
