Kilchoman Bourbon Barrel Small Batch Turve (for Finland) released

In Finland, another Small Batch Release has now been released under the name Turve. Even though it comes in the familiar orange packaging, it is not part of the series of Small Batch Releases for Selected Markets that began in 2019, of which three have already been bottled for Finland. In these, simply put, a Machir Bay vatting is married with an additional special type of cask. Turve, on the other hand, is the vatting of two fresh ex-bourbon barrels. The casks, which remain unnamed on the packaging and bottle, are Bourbon Barrels No. 950/2015 and 951/2015, which were filled on 1 December 2015. The whisky bottled on 8 April 2022 is therefore six and a half years old.

“Turve”, by the way, is the Finnish word for “peat”, a name that a young Kilchoman whisky peated at 50 ppm should certainly do justice to.
