In 2007, Islay’s newest distillery, Kilchoman, had been running spirit for only two years. While there were sporadic releases of new make and barely-aged stuff before, the first actual whisky, a three year old, was released in 2009. Since that time there have been many seasonal releases, single cask releases, and even a few independently bottle expressions, but it’s really only been in the last two years that the distillery has started to solidify their core line-up. To mark these periods of maturity, Kilchoman has now offered two “vintage” expressions, the first being the five-year-old 2006 Vintage, and the most recent, this six year old 2007 Vintage. Aged entirely in fresh, new American oak barrels, this is the oldest release yet for this successful young distillery.
This is the second vintage release from this Islay distillery, founded in 2005. As of the time of release (2013), this is the oldest whisky bottled by the distillery to date.
Soft rolling peat mixed with malt and a sherry like sweetness waft up out of the glass followed by notes of smoked meat, light orchard fruit and a bit of brine.
soft and silky peat, but this time it’s accompanied by caramel, vanilla, honey and apples. Hints of red licorice and graham move in and out as it glides across the palate.
Smooth and relaxed it frames the balanced picture the aroma and flavor paint.
