Kilchoman 100% Islay 9th Edition 2009 Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
Volume: 700ml ABV: 50% Age: 9 Years Old Country: Scotland
As one of Scotland’s smallest distilleries Kilchoman can claim that they perform every stage of the production process on-site. Taking water from the nearby Allt Gleann Osamail burn (stream) they produce approximately 120,000 litres of spirit a year. The spirit is then placed inside ex-Bourbon barrels from Buffalo Trace distillery in Kentucky, and Oloroso Sherry hogsheads and from Miguel Martin, Jerez, Spain. They often use wine seasoned barrels and rum seasoned barrels in smaller batch releases.
When Kilchoman was constructed it was the first new distillery on Islay in over 120 years. Not only a milestone for Islay but for the Scotch malt Whisky Industry.
Kilchoman’s 100% Islay range is the world’s only single farm Single Malt Scotch whisky. Every stage in the creation of this peaty scotch whisky is completed at Kilchoman, Islay’s farm distillery. From growing the barley to bottling the whisky it is 100% Islay. Using barley crops from local farms in 2007 and 2009 giving the distillery full control in its production. The 100% Islay range boasts a lighter smoke at 20ppm instead of the usual 50ppm. This allows more of the signature Kilchoman tropical fruits to be explored.
The 9th Edition is a vatting of 43 ex-Bourbon barrels matured for 9 years in onsite dunnage warehouses. Limited to 12,000 bottles worldwide.
