2nd Limited Release 2021: PX Sherry Cask Matured Edition
As already announced and presented at the Kilchoman Online Tasting with George and James Wills on 8 April, the second Limited Release of 2021 is a PX Sherry Cask Matured Edition. It will be available for the first time in the Kilchoman Online Shop from Wednesday, 5 May, and then at local retailers worldwide later in the week.
Casks that previously contained the extremely sweet Pedro Ximénez Sherry are mostly used for finishing, as full maturation risks dominating the whisky character after a relatively short period of storage. Kilchoman has not only released countless PX-finish single cask bottlings in recent years, but also some PX single cask full maturations last year, which proved that with careful cask selection and relatively early bottling, a successful synthesis of the Kilchoman distillery character and the sweet PX tones is possible.
With the PX Sherry Cask Matured Edition, Kilchoman is now releasing a major PX release for the first time. It is a vatting of 33 casks, nine of them PX full maturations and 24 PX finishes with a post-maturation period of between 12 and 18 months.
