New Small Batch Release “Triskele Casks – Sweden Exclusive” released

A Triskele Casks Release – the new name introduced this year for the Kilchoman Small Batch Series – has now also been released in Sweden at the end of the year.

Kilchoman Triskele Logo

The Celtic symbol of the Triskele, which is known to adorn every Kilchoman bottle as a logo, symbolises, among other things, the unity of three elements. As a name for Kilchoman’s small batch bottlings, which consist of three different cask types that together form a new unit, it is certainly a good choice.

The whiskies in the series of Small Batch Releases for Selected Markets, which began in 2019, are each based on a finished Machir Bay vatting or “Machir Bay Collaborative Vatting”, i.e. a whisky with an alcohol strength of 46% that has previously been aged for around 5 years, mainly in bourbon casks and 5-15% in Oloroso sherry casks. This vatting is then married with one additional special cask.

For the Triskele Casks – Sweden Exclusive, the additional cask is an STR cask (Shaved, Toasted & Re-charred ex-Red Wine cask). The proportions of the three types of cask used are stated as 75% Bourbon, 5% Oloroso Sherry and 20% STR cask.

The bottles are available from today for SEK 849 each in the branches of the state monopoly retailer Systembolaget.
