Kilchoman Madeira Cask Matured Single Malt Scotch

Madeira Cask 2015Kilchoman has released its first single malt Scotch whisky matured in Madeira casks.

Just 17 first fill ex-Madeira barrels were selected for the limited edition release, with only 6,100 bottles set to be made available worldwide. Filled in 2011, the Islay single malt has spent its full maturation period in the Madeira wine barrels.

“This release is a break from the norm for us, it represents a bit of an experiment with full maturation rather than simply finishing whisky in casks like Madeira”, said Kilchoman’s founder Anthony Wills, adding, “Full maturation means the impact of the cask is that much greater. The challenge is to ensure the whisky remains balanced and the influence of the Madeira cask is integrated with that of the Kilchoman spirit.”

Bottled at 50% abv, it carries a tasting note of strong lemon and citrus on the nose with a sweet and nutty dark chocolate character on the palate.
