ImpEx Cask Evolution series celebrates the quality maturation process of a fantastic Scotch whisky.  The Kilchoman Bourbon Barrel is first fill and craftily chosen by Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder & MD.  It is truly a rarity, from its traditional floor malting to its sea flavor, and it is exclusively available in the US.  Highlights include:

  • Kilchoman receives all their Bourbon Barrels whole directly to Islay.
  • All of their Bourbon Barrels are sourced exclusively from Buffalo Trace Distillery in Kentucky allowing for uniquely efficient and consistent maturation.
  • Bourbon Barrels are used to mature whisky and enhance it with a flavor that can range from vanilla sweetness to Christmas cake, evoking a sense of nostalgic longing for the holidays; each person’s experience is different!

Single Cask Single Malt is the purest representation  of any Scotch whisky, it is an unfiltered and undiluted representation of distillate and cask type.”  Anthony Wills, Founder & MD.
