Review by Kilchoman

Nose

lemon, citrus and butterscotch notes are prominent with soft peaty aromas in the background.

Palate

soft sweetness first and peat smoke and ripe fruit notes following.

Finish

long, clean and sweet with peat smoke and soft fruits at the end.

Note

Launching worldwide next week, the 2009 Vintage eight year old limited edition is our oldest globally-available release to date.

Though the casks selected for the 2009 Vintage were mostly distilled in 2009, a number of 2008 casks were also selected to add further layers of maturation.

The specific casks, chosen by Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder, are mostly a combination of fresh and refill bourbon barrels though Anthony also selected three 2008 Oloroso sherry butts to add additional layers of rich cooked fruits to balance with the lighter citrus and vanilla of the bourbon barrels. All previous Vintage expressions have been matured exclusively in bourbon barrels.
