KILCHOMAN 8 ans 100% Islay Fermentation Variation 75h Bourbon Barrel Single Cask New Vibrations


Inaugurated in 2005 within the Rockside farm, the Kilchoman distillery this year presents two 8-year-old whiskies made from barley cultivated on-site, displaying a similar phenol level (20 ppm) but from different fermentation times, aiming to explore the influence of this production stage on the organoleptic profile of the single malt. This first version was distilled after a 75-hour fermentation. Very elegant, it showcases a peat with pronounced medicinal and empyreumatic accents, contributing to a suggestive and refined aromatic and gustatory palette.

Tasting Notes

: Pale gold.

Nose : Fine, slender. At first scent, aromas of agave, soot, toasted bread, and turpentine emphasize the empyreumatic character of this Kilchoman. Upon aeration, ointment-like aromas add a characterful medicinal touch.

Palate : Refined, energetic. Both lemony and floral (hyacinth, lilac), the palate’s attack stages a rather dry, translucent peat. Very saline and maritime (shellfish), the mid-palate is in turn medicinal (iodine tincture, methylene blue).

Finish : Long, dense. The start of the finish conjures a Scottish moor where freshly cut blocks of peat dry. The aftertaste strongly recalls the agave notes from the first scent. It also evokes the time of harvest (straw, alfalfa).

Profile : Fine and refined.
