Here’s a cracking Small Batch, experimental release from Kilchoman that’s a unique vatting of three cask types. Bourbon (75%), Oloroso sherry (5%) and 20% ex red wine STR (that stands for shaved, toasted and recharred). Presented at natural cask strength, the whisky in non-chill-filtered and with no added colour!
Anthony Wills, head distiller comments:
“Our Small Batch bottlings are all about experimenting, using specially selected casks at natural strength to add added layers of flavour and intensity. The Small Batch Releases are for selected markets which began in 2019”
