The Kilchoman 16 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky represents a significant milestone for the distillery, marking the oldest global bottling to date. This exceptional single malt is the result of a meticulous selection of 21 casks, predominantly ex-bourbon barrels complemented by a touch of ex-oloroso sherry casks, achieving a harmonious balance that speaks to the dedication and craftsmanship at Kilchoman.

Craftsmanship and Maturation: This landmark release showcases the evolution of Kilchoman's distinctive flavors and character over 16 years of careful maturation. The choice of casks—mainly ex-bourbon with a hint of ex-oloroso sherry—exemplifies the distillery's commitment to creating complex, multifaceted whiskies. Anthony and Robin, closely monitoring these early casks, chose the perfect moment to blend them, resulting in a whisky that is both a celebration of Kilchoman's past and a testament to its future.

Tasting Notes:

  • Nose: The aroma is delightfully rich, offering a creamy citrus sweetness that intertwines with layers of cooked apples, pears, plums, and a sprinkle of nutmeg, inviting you into a world of complexity and depth.
  • Palate: On the palate, Kilchoman 16 Year Old achieves a masterful balance of flavors. Festive spices mingle with fresh vanilla and tropical fruit, while smouldering peat smoke adds a quintessentially Islay character, creating a sensory experience that is both vibrant and engaging.
  • Finish: The finish leaves an indelible impression, with dried mango and apricots fading into bbq smoke, and a lasting mouth-coating honey sweetness that lingers, inviting further exploration.

A Momentous Release: The Kilchoman 16 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky is not just a whisky; it's a proud declaration of the distillery's journey and achievements. This release is a testament to the patience, skill, and vision that have driven Kilchoman since its inception, offering whisky enthusiasts around the world a chance to experience the depth and maturity of Islay's farm distillery.
