Coming Soon! Kilchoman 100% Islay 11th Edition
We always look forward to this annual release from Kilchoman distillery, 100% Islay is such a special dram. To think each part of the process in making this special single malt, barley grown, distilled, matured and bottled has been done at the distillery itself makes it so special.
The 11th edition of 100% Islay has been distilled from the local barley harvest of 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2011 then matured for a minimum of 9 years in a combination of bourbon barrels and sherry butts. Dried from smoked peat which was cut from the Cnoc Dubh peat bank, giving a lightly peated rating of 20PPM and adding that distinctly smoky character we all love from Kilchoman single malt.
The 11th edition sees a higher proportion of Oloroso cask influence from previous years, with approximately 40% being used for this 11th release.
“Intense floral sweetness gives way to layers of rich spices, plums, dates and leather then grilled fruit, malt and vanilla with waves of clean fresh peat smoke and citrus sweetness on the finish”
Kilchoman 100% Islay 11th Edition will be available to purchase online via Abbey Whisky in the next few days, keep an eye on our New Arrivals page and social media channels for further news...
