Kilchoman Fino Sherry Cask Matured – 2023 Release (50%)


Kilchoman Fino Sherry Cask Matured – 2023 Release

Here’s something you don’t see everyday, an Islay single malt entirely aged in fino sherry casks. Kilchoman founder Anthony sourced 20 fino sherry butts from Bodega Jose y Miguel Martin in Jerez to mature his whisky in. This release spent a minimum of five years ageing before bottling in 2023 at 50% ABV. Fino, the lightest and freshest style of sherry, imparts quite different flavours to the more commonly seen oloroso or PX. So there will be no dried fruit or big spices here, thank you very much. Instead think of fresh apples, almonds and a salty note that perfectly compliments the smoky Kilchoman character.
