Kilchoman Fino Sherry Matured 2020 Edition
This is the fourth limited editon from this celebrated Islay distillery for the year 2020. The liquid used for this release was aged in 11 First Fill Fino Sherry casks and one re-fill Sherry Butt. The result is a whisky with a more mineral, flinty and saline character. Not only that, the whisky displays a lovely palate alive with citrus sweetness, green apple, stewed fruits and maritime peat smoke.
Kilchoman distillery is located on Islay. When it started operations it was the first distillery to be built there in some 124 years. The distillery carries out all the stages of the whisky making process on Islay. Some 25% of its malted barley is sourced from the local fields surrounding the site.
Kilchoman distillery has expanded its prodcution capacity once and will do so again in 2018. For such a young distillery it has been a fantastic first decade. It looks like the future is smiling to them.
