STRICTLY ONE PER CUSTOMER
A special Kilchoman bottling produced specially for the 2014 Islay whisky festival, it was matured for around 5 years, initially in first-fill bourbon casks before spending a finishing period in a Fino Sherry butt. And it's good. Really very good indeed. The outturn was 525 cask strength bottles.
Nose: Bourbon spice, green wood, caramelised apple - approachable at full strength, absolutely packed full of flavour - some shells and that Fino Sherry coming through too. Chuck in a big spoonful of Ambrosia custard and/or rice pudding and we're about there. Fantastic.
Palate: Huge and coastal at first, tangy citrus, plenty of peat coming through now, drying Sherry. Late hit of wood spices.
Finish: Quite clean, first hints of smoke.
Overall: Is this ambrosia? It's pretty bloody good that's for sure. One of the very best festival bottlings from Fèis Ìle 2014, hats off.

Superb stuff. Subtley intertwined citrus, smoke, peat and saltiness. Creamy and soft texture, even with water added. Makes me feel like I'm tucked up, warm at home with a wild winters night outside.
