At the “floating whisky fair” Viking Cinderella Whiskyfair 2019, there was a special Kilchoman experiment to taste and buy: a bourbon barrel that, after 7 years of maturation, was subjected to two Madeira finishings of different lengths: the first half of the cask with a Madeira finish of 6 weeks, the 2nd bottling mentioned here with a finishing period of 6 months.
This made for a really interesting comparison of the Madeira finishing of Kilchoman whisky.
