Kilchoman was the first distillery to be built on Islay in over 124 years. The distillery was founded in 2005 by Anthony Wills and is Islay’s only farm distillery, producing Single Farm Single Malt. Kilchoman is one of the few whisky distilleries in Scotland to remain independent. Established in 2005, Kilchoman was the first new distillery to be built on Islay in over 124 years. Kilchoman founder Anthony Wills, set out to revive the lost art of farm distilling once widespread before the commercialisation of the distilleries in the late 1800s. Over a decade into his journey, Kilchoman’s 100% Islay range remains the only Islay single malt produced completely on site, from barley to bottle.
This edition is made using the same vatting recipe as the regular Machir Bay bottling however rather than proofing down the strength they have released a limited number of bottles at cask strength. The higher ABV allows for the quality and intensity of the Kilchoman spirit to shine.
Nose: Waves of fresh green apple followed by tropical candied fruit.
Palate: Initial citrus notes but opens up to honeycomb and milk chocolate on the back palate.
Finish: Long, with an oily rich texture but noticeable black cracked pepper.
