Kilchoman releases new 100% Islay editionBy Becky Paskin
Islay distillery Kilchoman has released the third limited edition in its 100% Islay range.
The vatting of four and five-year-old single malts aged in Bourbon barrels is described by the independent distillery as having floral and soft fruit aromas with a burst of peat in the mouth.
Just 10,000 bottles of the 50% abv third edition of Kilchoman 100% Islay have been released into global markets, and are expected to sell quickly.
Anthony Wills, managing director of Kilchoman, said: “The previous two editions of the 100% Islay range were extremely well received and we’re delighted with the way the single malt’s character is developing.
“The range is unique in that every stage of production, from barley grown to the hand-bottling takes place at Kilchoman. As a traditional working-farm distillery, 100% Islay epitomises what we’re all about.”
The limited edition is available in 700ml bottles at an RRP of £59.95.
