KILCHOMAN 100% Islay 9th Edition
Kilchoman distillery finished their 2019 harvest and they’re excited to announce the release of the latest edition in our 100% Islay range, Scotland’s only Single Farm Single Malt.
Distilled from 2007 and 2009 barley crops, the 9th edition is a vatting of 43 ex-bourbon barrels matured for over 9 years in our on-site dunnage warehouses. Bottled at 50% abv.
Released annually since 2011, Kilchoman 100% Islay range is distilled from barley grown in the fields surrounding the distillery before the team malt, distil, mature and eventually bottle onsite; an unmatched, unbroken chain of creation from barley to bottle.
With barley origins, varieties and farm distillers one of the industry’s hot topics, Kilchoman 100% Islay range remains Scotland’s only Single Farm Single Malt. Whilst many distillers might make whisky from barley grown on their land, in these instances the malting, maturation or bottling is done elsewhere. Kilchoman 100% Islay malts can trace their origins back to the barley variety, field and farmer who planted it.
The 9th Edition marks a return to the bourbon barrel maturation of previous 100% Islay releases. Last year’s 8th edition contained roughly 50% sherry maturation however, Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder and Master Distiller, has decided to return to his trusted American oak casks for this year’s release.
