Coming Soon! Kilchoman Madeira Cask Matured | 2021 Release
The latest limited edition release from Kilchoman distillery will soon be here! The 2021 release of Kilchoman Madeira Cask Matured was distilled in 2015 from Port Ellen malt peated to 50PPM then matured in Madeira hogsheads for 5 years and 3 months.
“Kilchoman really lends itself to maturation in fortified wine casks. The rich fruity character of the casks balances nicely with the creamy citrus sweetness of our new spirit. My preference when using wine casks has always been to use fresh first fill barrels with a view to bottling the whisky relatively young. This approach means the lighter clean flavours and fresh maritime peat smoke aren’t overwhelmed by the cask influence”
Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder
