Kilchoman 100% Islay / Inaugural Release 2011
70cl / 50%
Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Distillery Bottling
A first for Kilchoman - a whisky distilled and matured on Islay as usual, but also only using grain grown on the island. It's only a 3 year old but has a lot to it, as we've come to expect from Kilchoman.

Tasting Notes by Dave Broom for Whisky Advocate
The only Islay distillery not on the coast - and the most westerly on the island - Kilchoman is reviving the tradition of farm distilling, and this limited edition release uses locally grown Optic barley malted at the distillery. Very creamy, with some stewed apple, green banana, and (when diluted) sponge cake mix. The smoke develops on the palate, adding an earthy note. Rich, with some clove and licorice on the finish. Well worth a look. 87 Points
Customer Reviews:(1 review)
This is my first young(less than ten years) whisky, so for myself I could definitely tell there was a youthful aspect to the flavors on the palate where I found the flavors of smoked fruits maybe apple or pear. The nose was rather sharp but not unpleasant. and the smoke carried on to a long spicy finish. All in all I have to say this was very enjoyable and I can't wait for the second 100% Islay release.
