This single cask release was bottled on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of Bar Selene in Mito, Japan. Typical in COVID and post-Brexit times it appeared somewhat belatedly in Japan at the beginning of 2022.
This bottling is another of just over a dozen releases to date in a series of Pedro Ximénez Sherry Hogsheads filled with 100% Islay Spirit on 27 May 2015, all previously bottled at 5 to 6 years of age, giving Kilchoman aficionados their first opportunity to taste PX full maturations with 100% Islay whisky.
Kilchoman usually bottles its 100% Islay whisky, distilled from the farm’s own barley, mainly in bourbon barrels and also in oloroso sherry casks. Other types of casks are extremely rare here.
