KILCHOMAN 10 ans 2011 Bourbon Barrel Single Cask Antipodes


Colour: bright gold.

Nose: refined, distinguished. The slightly empyreumatic first nose (rubber, sleet) also reveals very delicate notes of smoke, ash and vegetal peat. Allowed to breathe, candied citrus fruit (lemon, grapefruit), vanilla pod and aromatic plants (rosemary, sage) form a gentle yet energetic transition. Gradually, aromas of schist and slate emphasize the aroma palette’s mineral side.

Palate: subtle, resolute. A mixture of fresh fruit (pear, apple), peat and kelp, the attack is salty (sea spray, salt) and honeyed (acacia). The heady mid-palate (iris, honeysuckle) sees the peat become more powerful, developing extremely appealing liquorice and mentholated notes. The end of the palate focuses on the flavour palette’s spicy (cinnamon, clove) and fruity (lemon, grapefruit) temperament.

Finish: long, well-balanced. The milky start of the finish (coconut, almond) has moved considerably closer to barley, which has become omnipresent and is found in green, malted, peaty and fermenting forms. The delicately tarry end of the finish is also deliciously rich (flan). The retro-nasal olfaction is clearly medicinal (ointment, mustard poultice) and the empty glass like a sweet treat (Calisson d’Aix).

Founded in 2005 by Kathy et Anthony Wills, Kilchoman was the first new distillery to be built on Islay for 124 years. 14 years later and following the success of its single malt, a second tasting room, a new malting floor and a new kiln were all opened on the same site. Produced with barley grown and malted at the Rockside farm, which is owned by the distillery, this version is peated to 20 ppm and faithfully reproduces the more smoky rather than peaty character of this particularly ethereal, fruity and salty single malt.
