Dram of the day; Kilchoman 100% Islay 2nd Edition 50% 70cl

The Kilchoman Distillery was founded in 2005 and was the first new distillery to be built on Islay for 120 years. This is a traditional farm distillery with a fair proportion of the barley grown and malted on the site. The distillery is one of the smallest distilleries in Scotland with a production capacity of less than 100,000 litres of spirit of year.

This is the second 100% Islay release from Kilchoman Distillery and has been produced from barley grown, malted, distilled, matured and bottled at the distillery.

The whisky is a vatting from  3 year old and 4 year old casks  (50% of each) in a combination of  bourbon (Fresh &Refill) barrels from Buffalo Trace distillery, Kentucky, USA and Olorosso sherry butts from Miguel Martin in Spain.

Tasting notes :-

The colour is a light golden hue, on the nose there are soft peaty aromas with a blend of citrus, lemon and pear drops spring to mind. The palate has initial sweetness followed by soft smoke and the again mixed fruits are present. With a long, clean and fresh finish this is a whisky to savour.
