Kilchoman Islay Casado 2022 Edition 46% ABV 50ml Miniature
Kilchoman distillery sits amongst the traditional building of Rockside Farm on the north-west cost of Islay. Sheltered beneath the Cnoc Dubh headland, their barley fields stretch west to the shores of Machir Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. Kilchoman is unique in many ways, most notably for their 100% Islay range, Islay's only Single Farm Single Malt.
Established in 2005, they are true to Islay's rich distilling heritage, using local peat in the traditional way, slowly distilling by hand, maturing all their whiskies on site and bottling without colouring or chill-filtration.
Casado (Portuguese for Marriage) was matured in fresh bourbon barrels for 6 years before 38 casks were selected and married together for 2 years in two 6,000 litre Portuguese red wine vats,.
The two years spent in red wine vats has added layers of rich red fruit and mixed spices, balancing beautifully with the maritime peat smoke and citrus character unique to Kilchoman.
