Released 12-May 2014, this fourth edition of Kilchoman’s 100% Islay was distilled 2009/10 and aged in first fill ex-bourbon barrels (32 five year old and 8 four year barrels) until being bottled in May 2014 without chill-filtration or caramel colouring.

As the name suggests, all parts of the production process were carried out at the farm distillery, from growing and harvesting the barley to bottling. 100% Islay has a lower peat level than other Kilchoman releases.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 18/05/2014

Appearance:

Clear, pale straw yellow.

Aroma:

Moderate peat smoke and salt with peach pie, caramel shortbread, dried fruit and orange peel. More citrus emerges with water.

Taste:

Soft peat smoke, tobacco leaves and lemon zest with vanilla and sea salt. Water exposes slight sweetness which perfectly balances saltiness.

Aftertaste:

Delicate smoke, old leather, salt and zesty lemon. Incredibly good for a malt of such a tender age.
