Kilchoman Cognac Cask Matured - 2023 Release Whisky

(70cl, 50%)

Kilchoman Cognac Cask Matured - 2023 Release

Kilchoman Cognac 2023 Bottling Note

Another unusual release from Kilchoman, this isn't a finish, instead it's entirely matured in 300 litre Cognac casks which come from Tonellerie Bossuet. Kilchoman used a 50ppm heavily-peated new-make spirit, which then went into 32 300 litre French oak casks for a minimum of six years. The result was bottled at 50% ABV with no colour or chill-filtering.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Rich wafts of apples and pears with notes of honey, orange peel, baking spices, and smoky peat.

Palate Creamy and buttery with lemon and apricot fruit, spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg, with toasty oak and peat smoke.

Finish Long, with flavours of dried fruit, spices, and almonds.

Reviews for Kilchoman Cognac Cask Matured - 2023 Release
Nice enough
Plenty of flavour, very interesting. Not many cognac cask whisky’s out there, so it’s quite different. Still has the signature Kilchoman flavour profile, with some buttery sweet oak. Plenty of smoke throughout too.

Not overwhelmed
I love kilchoman, I have a a few bottles I save for special occasions and it's become my favourite islay whiskey. I could not stop thinking about this so I ordered it.
It lacks the depth and character that I love kilchoman for and is even harsh and dry. At just 6 years old I assumed it must have just come round sooner than expected and would have all the notes of a classic kilchoman. It did not. It's just OK, definitely not worth £79. Could have done with another 6 years.
