Scotch Learn More
This is Kilchoman’s first release of a Sauternes Cask Matured Scotch; it is a limited edition release of just 6,000 bottles. This single malt scotch has been fully matured for over five years in Sauternes casks.
The Sauternes Cask Matured follows Port and Madeira cask matured expressions released in recent years and continues Kilchoman’s commitment to small batch ‘full term maturation’ rather than the more common practice of finishing whisky in such casks for a short period prior to bottling.
Anthony Wills, Kilchoman founder and Managing Director; “Although only making up a small part of our range, full term wine cask maturation in Port, Madeira and now Sauternes has produced fantastic results. The combination of peat smoke, fragrant Kilchoman spirit and full maturation in fresh Sauternes casks makes for a truly unique single malt.”
Having spent its full maturation period in fresh Sauternes casks the whisky has inevitably taken on the textured white age influence associated with Sauternes casks however it remains balanced with an intriguing mix of maritime peat smoke, sweetness and citrus vibrancy
