KILCHOMAN 9 ans 2012 100% Islay Bourbon Barrel Single Cask Conquête


Produced from barley grown locally at the Rockside farm and malted and peated (20 ppm) at the distillery, this Kilchoman bourbon cask is ethereal yet full of character. Creating a hotbed of contrasts in smoky, spicy, fruity, floral and even salty notes, the aroma and flavour palette is deeply complex, bursting with life and stunningly mature.

Appearance : pale gold.
Nose : distinguished, quaffable. The mineral (chalk), iodine and salty first nose reveals incredibly delicate peat and smoke. Allowed to breathe, the aroma palette imitates a distinguished Graves white wine from the Pessac-Léognan appellation. Little by little, spices (black pepper, ginger), salt and smoky grains of malted barley rise to the surface. With time, a beautiful fruity (pineapple) oxidation highlights the aromas of aromatic plants (chamomile, verbena, sage).
Palate : lively, precise. The abundantly fruity (apple, Mirabelle plum) attack is also lush (green barley). On the mid-palate, blocks of peat seeped in seaweed and sea spray literally roll across the palate. A handful of white florals (lily, iris), bulrush and even bamboo shoot wonderfully punctuate the expressive end of the palate.
Overall : long, ethereal. The very milky (coconut, porridge) start to the finish is refreshed by the tangy juices of numerous citrus fruit (lemon, yellow grapefruit). Smoke vapours, ash and a liquorice peat then coat the end of the palate that bursts with mineral salts. The retro-nasal olfaction takes us to a malting floor. Notes of brioche and damp barley flood the air. The complex empty glass is medicinal, camphoric, peaty and peppery.
