Sauternes Cask Finish£65.00SOLD OUT
Sauternes Cask Finish
The Sauternes Cask Finish is a combination of thirty 2012 bourbon barrels married in Sauternes wine casks for five months before bottling. 10,000 bottles will be released worldwide of this limited edition, bottled at 50% abv.
The Sauternes Cask Finish follows a range of wine cask releases over the previous five years (Limited Edition Archive). This latest offering differs in that it was initially matured in ex-bourbon barrels before being transferred into fresh sauternes hogsheads for five months prior to bottling. This finishing period allows the caramel and vanilla influence of bourbon barrels to be accentuated by the buttery sweetness of the sauternes cask.
Anthony Wills Kilchoman Founder and MD, “The full-term wine cask maturation’s that we’ve released in the past have been hugely successful, but we wanted to show a slightly measured approach this time around. The five month Sauternes finish has allowed a more subtle sweetness and buttery character to be imparted into the spirit while maintaining fresh fruits, citrus and vanilla notes so typical in Kilchoman releases.”

100% Islay – 8th Edition£61.25SOLD OUT
100% Islay – 8th Edition
Released in limited runs annually, the 100% Islay range is our only expression distilled solely from barley grown and malted here at the distillery, standing alone as Islay’s only Single Farm Single Malt, 100% Islay – from barley to bottle.
The 8th Edition is a vatting of 23 bourbon barrels and 7 oloroso sherry butts filled between 2008 and 2012, bottled at 50% ABV. A total of 12,000 bottles have been released worldwide.
The 8th Edition can trace its origins to the fertile soil of the Kilchoman barley fields. It was here that we harvested Optic barley between 2007 and 2011. Once harvested the barley was hand malted, peated and distilled before being matured in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks. The combination of cask types allows for an elegant balance of rich spices, citrus sweetness and earthy peat smoke.
The key difference between this and previous batches of the 100% Islay is the addition of sherry cask maturation. The seven oloroso sherry casks included in the vatting give the whisky added depth and richness compared to the fresh fruits and vanilla of previous editions.
