The brand new Kilchoman is now in stock and will be available to try during The Autumn Speyside Festival 2010.

This release is from 100% Bourbon casks.  By far the most refined release so far.  In no way is this a hard hitting 3 year old from Islay but that's what it is.  It's much better behaved than that and a real pleasure to drink,

Nose: A pleasing balance of sweet ash and some tar.  Definite notes of pear drops, vanilla essence, candid lemon and rock salt - packs of Starburst on the bonfire.

Taste:  Sweet, smoke and spiced fruits in 3 very defined waves.

Finish: Quite dry.  Peat smoke, cloves and hot chills spices which last for a long time.
