Type: Scotland, Single Malt, Islay
Availability: Better Whiskey Stores
This expression is called 100% Islay because unlike most distilleries the process from barley to bottling is done completely on Islay at the Kilchoman distillery. On the nose there is peat, iodine and some dried fruits. The palate is malty with some decent peat, not a lot of peat but the ballance is superb, dry but lightly sweet with the taste of fruit. The finish is light with a bit of a lemon zip to it and smoke. This bottle is slightly lighter than some of the other expressions I have had by Kilchoman. However, the ballance really does make this is an excellent whisky that is a must try.
