Kilchoman 100% Islay
Salt, minerality, peat, orchard fruit, candy sweetness, vanilla and butterscotch. It’s like a subtle sweetness hitting against a smoky mineral wall.
Salty, minerality, peat, orchard fruit, toffee, spice, camphor and a light bit of vanilla taffy and butterscotch.
Long spicy fade of peat, minerality and a touch of fruit.
BALANCE, BODY & FEEL
Good balance, medium body and a warm spicy feel that turns dry.
The distillery quote below goes into a bit more in depth, but what’s really cool about releases like the Kilchoman 100% Islay 2017 isn’t just that it’s Islay barley, but that at its core it’s a different whisky. All materials and the entire process is done on Islay and it’s peated at a lower level to give a different experience than what you get in their other releases.
