Kilchoman 2008 Small Batch / Kilchoman Club 2nd Edition
Opened in 2005, Kilchoman was the first new distillery to be built on Islay for 124 years. Its proprietors are the Wills family, and the distillery saw a return of the practice of “farm distilling” to the island, with its own barely fields, malt floors and kilns. Today around 25% of its barley requirement is self-fulfilled, and in 2011 they bottled their first 100% Islay release of single farm, single malt. The distillery’s first release came in 2009, and it has cemented a fine reputation ever since.
Released exclusively for the 'Kilchoman Club' in November 2013, this small batch release was distilled in October 2008 and bottled on 4th November 2013.
This is a vatting of 8 specially selected first fill ex-bourbon casks, finished in 4 fresh Oloroso butts.
Cask #485-490 and #567-568.
One of 2,000 bottles.
