Cognac Cask Matured Single Malt Scotch Whisky 2023 Edition
We welcome our first ever Cognac Cask Matured release as part of the 2023 Limited Editions. 32 casks were chosen by Anthony and Robin for their exceptional quality. The Kilchoman spirit was filled into those Cognac casks and left to age in their warehouses for a minimum of six years. The Cognac casks were sourced from Tonellerie Bossuet (France).
When combining these 32 casks together, each individual cask plays an important part in the final vatting. Each cask captures its own degree of flavour but when brought together, a wonderfully rich, herbaceous sweet spice can easily be identified. The maritime Kilchoman peat smoke shines through.
Nose: An opening note of rich apple and pear forms the structure for this release. Herbaceous fresh fruit begins to make its way as the whisky begins to open. Subtle tones of honey and warming spice develop over time. Peat remains delicate on the nose,bringing a dryness to this release.
Palate: The texture provided by a slow distillation and the influence of the Cognac oak allows for a buttery texture which continues throughout. Dried lemon and apricot combine with cinnamon and nutmeg which are held together by an influence of toasted oak and sweet peat smoke
Finish: The depth of flavour that the Cognac casks have provided the Kilchoman spirit is unrivalled; dried fruits and marzipan make way to crystallised ginger, balancing sweet and spice. Lingering peat smoke is lightened with the influence of citrus oil making itself known across the palate
