Kilchoman Launches 2006 Vintage

Kilchoman, Islay’s Farm Distillery, is delighted to announce the release of its 2006 vintage; the first 5 year old from the first distillery to be built on Islay for over 120 years.

Matured from 80% first fill and 20% refill bourbon barrels and reduced to 46%abv; the 2006 Vintage is a limited release and available in mature malt markets around the world at a  UK RRP £49 per bottle.

Anthony Wills commented, ‘This is another milestone for Kilchoman, the additional two years of maturation has given the 2006 vintage an extra dimension and depth of character’.  

Tasting Notes

Colour- Light beech darkening nicely with age.

Nose – Peaty aroma, nice soft cooked fruits, Christmas cake.

Palate – Cloves, butterscotch, soft citrus, mouth –filling with a lasting sweetness.

Finish- A classic Islay Malt, now showing the benefit of ageing; peaty, fresh and clean at the end.
