2018/11/22 – Club Release 2018 announced
Kilchoman today announced the appearance of the annual bottling for members of the Kilchoman Club. And it is already safe to say that this year’s 7th edition of the Club release will again be a milestone in the history of Kilchoman whiskies. It is a vatting of two Oloroso Sherry Butts from 2006, the contents of casks no. 309 & 310/2066 were distilled on 1.11.2006 and bottled on 7.11.2018 with an strength of 55.2% abv. This is not only the second 12-year-old Kilchoman whisky ever, but also by far the oldest fully matured sherry whisky that Kilchoman lovers have ever tasted.
Anthony Wills writes about it: “The Club Release is a special bottling, I always take great care when selecting these casks and this year I was really torn, these two casks are some of our rarest stock, we simply don’t have many old sherry casks. That said, I believe they are at their peak, the balance is exquisite and as much as I might want to leave them in the warehouse for sentimental reasons, they were too good to overlook.”
The whisky will be available for purchase by Kilchoman Club members on the distillery website on November 28, 2018.
