Contrary to what is stated on the label, this bottling by the Polish Kilchoman importer M & P is not a PX finish, but the only second PX sherry fully matured Kilchoman whisky in the world. Made from barley grown and malted at Kilchoman, this 100% Islay whisky matured for exactly 5 years in a PX Sherry Hogshead.
Even though this bottling is hardly available outside Poland, it became known to a somewhat larger audience as a blind tasting sample. At the Kilchoman Online Blindtasting with Anthony Wills on June 25, 2020 it was the “Mystery Drama No. 4”.
