After the new German Kilchoman importer Hanseatische Weinhandelsgesellschaft Bremen had already brought nine different single cask bottlings onto the German market in one sweep in May 2020 with the Uniquely Islay Series – An t-Earrach 2020, seven further releases followed in December 2020 with Uniquely Islay Series – An Geamhradh 2020.
This is number 3 of this second series. The Whisky has been matured in a fresh bourbon barrel for over seven years before being finished in an STR cask (Shaved, Toasted and Re-charred ex-red wine hogshead) for fourteen month.
