Explore the exceptional Kilchoman Sauternes Cask Matured 2024 Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky, a rare and exquisitely balanced expression from one of Islay's most innovative distilleries. This limited edition release has undergone full-term maturation exclusively in ex-Sauternes wine casks, carefully selected by Kilchoman Founder, Anthony Wills. The combination of fresh and refill Sauternes barriques, originally filled in two separate years with the youngest from 2018, results in a symphony of complex flavors and aromas that highlight Kilchoman's distinctive Islay character.

Innovative Maturation Process:

The use of Sauternes casks, a rare choice for full-term whisky maturation, presents unique challenges and rewards. The 2024 edition features a blend of 22% fresh and 78% refill Sauternes casks. This strategic selection enriches the whisky with intense sweet wine flavors while maintaining the robust peaty profile Kilchoman is celebrated for. The Sauternes casks used were primed by a previous short-term finishing process, which maximized their sweet wine influence, ensuring a balanced integration with the peaty malt.

Tasting Experience:

  • Color: Golden amber, with a slight honeyed tint.
  • Nose: A rich bouquet of barbecued pineapple, candied ginger, and floral peat smoke, underpinned by a buttery sweetness.
  • Palate: The palate is a delightful blend of Kilchoman’s peat smoke with the lush, sweet notes of honey and ripe fruits typical of Sauternes wine, creating a beautifully balanced profile.
  • Finish: Long and satisfying, with lingering notes of sweet spices and smoky undertones.
