Kilchoman 2011 100% Islay Unpeated Single Bourbon Cask #306 / Berry Brothers and Rudd
Opened in 2005, Kilchoman was the first new distillery to be built on Islay for 124 years. Its proprietors are the Wills family, and the distillery saw a return of the practice of “farm distilling” to the island, with its own barely fields, malt floors and kilns. Today around 25% of its barley requirement is self-fulfilled, and in 2011 they bottled their first 100% Islay release of single farm, single malt. The distillery’s first release came in 2009, and it has cemented a fine reputation ever since.
This whisky was filled into unpeated ex-Bourbon cask #306 on 8th June 2011 and matured before being bottled on 12th October 2020. One of 255 bottles made exclusive to Berry Brothers and Rudd.
