In late summer 2021, the German Kilchoman importer Hanseatische Weinhandelsgesellschaft Bremen released An Samhradh 2021, the third Uniquely Islay Series with nine different bottlings.
With number 4 of the series, a Kilchoman Armagnac finish was presented for the first time worldwide. The whisky has been matured in two fresh bourbon barrels for over 6 years before being finished in a 400l Armagnac cask for 7 months.
