This is the 2nd bottling of a series of five different Kilchoman single cask releases from the Chinese importer “Single Malt Club China”, which were released in late 2019 / early 2020. The series is dedicated to the “5 constants” of Confucianism (benevolence, righteousness, proper rite, knowledge, integrity) and, according to the importer, aims to combine these important elements of Chinese culture with Kilchoman whisky. One of these constants is shown on each of the specially designed bottle labels.
The 2nd edition “Righteousness” contains a whisky that was first matured for almost six years in a fresh Bourbon barrel and then finished in a fresh Rum cask for 19 month.
