On October 21, 2016, this single cask release for the Swedish market was added to the temporary assortment of Systembolaget, the state-owned company that holds the monopoly on retail sales of alcoholic beverages in Sweden, and was sold out within a very short time.
After four and a half years in an ex-bourbon barrel, the whisky was aged for 5 months in a PX Hogshead.
In October 2016, Anthony Wills, the founder of Kilchoman, together with Peter Kokovic, Business Area Manager Enjoy Wine & Spirits Sweden, who launched the above exclusive release for Sweden, went on a mini-promotional tour in Sweden. Together they visited Nyköping, Söderköping and Mjölby to hold whisky tastings for local whisky clubs.
