Kilchoman 100% Islay Barley Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1078157 Whisky Advocate

 The only Islay distillery not on the coast — and the most westerly on the island — Kilchoman is reviving the tradition of farm distilling, and this limited edition release uses locally grown Optic barley malted at the distillery. Very creamy, with some stewed apple, green banana, and (when diluted) sponge cake mix. The smoke develops on the palate, adding an earthy note. Rich, with some clove and licorice on the finish. Well worth a look.

K&L Notes

The 100% Islay whisky range is unique. It is produced from barley grown at the distillery, and every step of the production is completed onsite. Grab what you can as it goes very quickly.

Kilchoman's lofty goal of producing Islay Whisky from 100% Islay ingredients might take another 100 years to achieve (I haven't seen them planting any oak trees), but they've gone 99% of the way and produce one of the most unique and delicious Islay malts nonetheless. Always with the 100% Islay we get more of a spirit-driven style than the other Kilchoman and I know why they won't obfuscate this wonderful whisky. Ultra sweet malt, super citrus, sweet salty nuts and more citrus. Zippy, briny, mineral, yet somehow still sweet fruity malt on the palate. This is malt whisky for mezcal lovers. Serve with a slice of orange and some toasted chapulines.
