At the end of 2021, a series of five Kilchoman single cask releases dedicated to the “five sacred creatures” of Chinese mythology appeared in Taiwan: the Azure Dragon of the North, the White Tiger of the West, the Vermilion Bird of the South, the Black Tortoise of the East and the Quilin or Yellow Dragon of the Centre. The labels of the individual releases (two Bourbon Barrels, two STR Cask Finishes and one Pedro Ximénez Cask Finish) were decorated with images of these creatures.
This is the third bottling of the series, dedicated to the Vermilion Bird of the South.
The Whisky was matured in an Ex-Bourbon Barrel before being finished in an STR Cask (Shaved, Toasted und Re-charred ex-red wine hogshead).
