Kilchoman Sauternes 2018

A 2018 release from Islay's Kilchoman distillery, initially matured in bourbon barrels before being moved over to casks that previously held Sauternes wine. Within these sweet wine casks the whisky rests for a five months before being bottled at 50% ABV. The combination of earthy smoke from the peated spirit and intense fruit notes from the cask is absolutely wonderful indeed.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Apricot, BBQ pineapple and salted citrus peels, with just a hint of baked earth.

Palate Quince jam, oatcakes, grassy peat and green apple boiled sweeties.

Finish Sea salt, raspberry, candied ginger.

Buy it while it's there, it's a once in a lifetime chance.
My son took me to the Kilchoman distillery several years ago as he works for a touring company in Edinburgh and I bought a bottle of this beautiful whisky. It is the best Iv'e ever tasted in 40 years, absolutely stunning, very palatable. I hope to be back to the Kilchoman distillery very soon.
