(rated 93/A From The Whisky Jug) The malt was aged for three years in bourbon casks and matured in Oloroso sherry butts for five months.

Nose: old-fashioned aromas of peat smoke with slight medicinal undertones of dried fruit and iodine, the texture is rich and slightly oily.

Palate: is a complex array of flavors: toffee, apple, caramel, golden raisin and hints of licorice root. The smoky and peaty components return on the long but clean finish. 

How important is wood when it comes to aging scotch whisky? Ask the lads at Kilchoman or, better yet, grab yourself a glass of the Kilchoman 2008 Vintage. At only 7 years old this whisky out performs some whiskies that have at least 3 years over it and I think that a lot of that has to do with the barrels.

Kilchoman is very particular about the casks used to age their whisky. Kilchoman sources theirs directly from Buffalo Trace and ships them over whole to retain their original integrity. Kilchoman starts life as Ardbeg, leaving Port Ellen Maltings at the exact same 50 ppm spec as the peaty giant. Different fermentation and distillation methods lead to a new make that will be different from each other, but the wood is the real catalyst that brings out all of the amazing flavors and aromas tucked away in the initially clear spirit. Starting with great malt, getting to a clean new make and then putting that spirit into “fresh” barrels used to age amazing bourbon… it’s easy to see why Kilchoman keeps pumping out one tasty whisky after another.
