Islay, SCOTLAND
$170. 00 Bottle
$2040.00 Dozen
ABV: 48%
Whereas previous annual releases have been matured exclusively in x Bourbon casks, 2010 sees a vatting of thirty fresh bourbon barrels with three oloroso sherry butts filled in 2010 and matured for over nine years. The balance of bourbon and sherry is a tried and tested combination for Kilchoman, as demonstrated by the success of 'Sanaig' and 'Machir Bay'. Normally bottled at 46%, the 2010 also arrives with a slightly higher ABV.

Notes from Kilchoman... Nose: Bright notes of lemon zest, melted butter, sweet spices, and damp smouldering peat smoke. Palate: Dried seaweed, chimney smoke, cloves, sweet tobacco, banana and linseed oil. Finish: Dried apricot, vanilla, and rounded peat smoke. 48% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.
