3 yo Kilchoman released – Bourbon Single Cask 292/2018 for Cask Chasers

In the USA – more precisely in some liquor stores in the Mid Atlantic Region – a single cask bottling of a three-year-old Kilchoman (!) has been available since mid-August.

This bottling goes back to the initiative of Jared Card, the Mid Atlantic Region manager of the US importer ImpEx Beverages, As a fan of young Kilchoman whiskies, in times when the focus of interest is concentrated on older and older Kilchoman releases, he wanted to turn his attention once again to the very young Kilchoman bottlings that caused such a sensation in the early days of the Kilchoman distillery. However, it took him some time to convince Kilchoman, in the person of James Wills, who is responsible for the US market, to bottle such a young Kilchoman cask nowadays. He then brought the well-known whisky group Cask Chasers on board as a partner. This group of whisk(e)y enthusiasts is particularly active on Facebook and also runs an excellent whisky podcast.

The taste comparison between the first Kilchoman whiskies released over 10 years ago and this bottling is extremely interesting for every Kilchoman fan. In the meantime, not only the type of barley used has changed, but also the production processes have been optimized over the years.

Of course, there is also a very informative podcast with Jared Card about this bottling, which can be found here: Cask Chasers Podcast: Conversations about Whiskey: Our Exclusive Kilchoman on Apple Podcasts
