New Small Batch Relese “Triskele Casks – Italian Exclusive 2023/1” released

After the Netherlands and Sweden, a Triskele Casks release has now also appeared in Italy at the end of the year. Triskele Casks is the new name introduced this year for the Kilchoman Small Batch series.

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.

As is well known, 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 matured for around 5 years, mainly in bourbon casks and 5-15% in Oloroso sherry casks. This vatting is then married with an additional special cask type.

As with the Swedish edition, the additional cask in the Triskele Casks – Italian Exclusive 2023/1 bottling is an STR cask (Shaved, Toasted & Re-charred ex-Red Wine cask). The proportions of the three types of cask are stated as 75% Bourbon, 5% Oloroso Sherry and 20% STR cask.

The bottles are available from today at for 89 euros each.
