The “Sauternes Cask Matured”, released on 7 September 2016, continued the series of annual wine cask maturations. Distilled at the end of 2010 / beginning of 2011, the whisky was matured for over 5 years in French Sauternes casks. Bottled were 6,000 bottles with an alcohol content of 50% abv. As with the “Port Cask Release” and “Madeira Cask Release” of previous years, this is a fully matured whisky and not a Sauternes Cask finish.

Anthony Wills wrote about this: “Although only making up a small part of our range, full term wine cask maturation in Port, Madeira and now Sauternes has produced fantastic results. The combination of peat smoke, fragrant Kilchoman spirit and full maturation in fresh Sauternes casks makes for a truly unique single malt.”
