“Our 100% Islay spirit pairs seamlessly with ex-bourbon barrels. The lower peating level (20ppm) allows the natural floral sweetness of the spirit to shine through whilst a higher age profile adds layers of overripe tropical fruit and stewed plums whilst the high ABV makes it no lightweight. I’m delighted with how the 9th Edition has come together and as ever, I look forward to hearing people’s opinions” Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder and Master DistillerDistilled from the 2007 and 2009 barley crops, the 9th edition is a vatting of 43 ex-bourbon barrels matured for over 9 years in their on-site dunnage warehouses.The 9th Edition marks a return to the bourbon barrel maturation of previous 100% Islay releases. Last year’s 8th edition contained roughly 50% sherry maturation however Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder and Master Distiller, has decided to return to his trusted American oak casks for this year’s release.Kilchoman Distillery is a small family run farm distillery based on the rugged west coast of Islay.Tasting notes:Nose: citrus sweetness, apricots and juniper and wild herbsPalate: layers of lemon tart, vanilla, briny peat, smoke and dark maple syrupFinish: long, clean, oily and intense as flavours fight for supremacy
