Kilchoman Triple Cask Matured Small Batch for Whisky.de
The largest German whisky online retailer whisky.de has now released a Kilchoman Triple Cask Matured Small Batch as an exclusive 2022 club bottle for the customers of its whisky club. The bottling has the enormous edition of 12,126 bottles and thus enters completely new Kilchoman Small Batch dimensions, some of the worldwide distributed Kilchoman Limited Releases had a smaller edition… This speaks for the growing popularity of Kilchoman in Germany as well as for the economic success of whisky.de, who need such a high edition for their club bottle.
The Small Batch is a vatting of 75% bourbon barrels, 5% oloroso sherry casks and 20% PX sherry casks aged 3-5 years. In the series of Small Batch releases for selected markets introduced in 2019, which this bottling follows in composition and design, a special single cask (at cask strength) is usually added as a third to a Machir Bay vatting already diluted to 46% alcohol, which is known to be composed predominantly of bourbon barrels and around 10% oloroso sherry casks. The huge number of casks required a slightly different procedure for the Triple Cask Matured Release. Thus, all three types of casks were first married in the classic way and then diluted to 46% alcohol.
For a taste comparison, we recommend especially for German whisky lovers the Genesis Harvest Stage 1 which has the same composition, or The Belgium Small Batch No. 2, where the PX content is somewhat higher at 25%. In Germany, the German importer has replaced the Small Batch series for selected markets with the somewhat more elaborately designed Genesis series.
