The second release of Kilchoman's ongoing Machir Bay whisky, bottled in early 2013. It's a vatting of four and five year old whisky matured in first fill bourbon casks, married and then finished in Oloroso sherry butts for four weeks before bottling. From the little sip we tried in early March 2013 it's another cracker.
The Glengyle distillery, which produces Kilkerran, only started production in 2004. This particular whisky is part of an ongoing project in which they use a solera system to mature the whisky. The Solera cask is only filled with whisky that was distilled in 2004 and bottled exclusively for visitors to "The Tasting Room" (a special Tour offered by Springbank/Glengyle).
A very limited edition (just 250 bottles) release from The English Whisky Company. This lightly peated expression was aged for 4 years in a sauternes cask and is presented in an Ibisco decanter and accompanying wooden box.
