Kilchoman 16 yo Sherry Single Cask 334/2006 for The Distillery Shop

On 1 June, the Kilchoman Open Day of Fèis Ìle 2023, Kilchoman released another Distillery Exclusive Release as a “surprise bottle”, so to speak. And this is an absolute rarity with a 16-year-old Oloroso Sherry cask bottling. After the first two 16-year-old Kilchoman releases of the previous year, which were matured in bourbon barrels, Kilchoman has now bottled one of the last remaining sherry casks from 2006. The yield was 602 bottles with an alcohol content of 54.8%. The bottles are sold at a price of £230 each.

Sixteen and a half years of maturation in a fresh Oloroso sherry butt led us to expect a sherry bomb. But it turned out to be an extremely complex and balanced whisky. Our tasting notes can be found here.
