This is the 4th bottling of a series of 5 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 4th edition “Knowledge” contains a whisky that was first matured for over 8 years in a fresh Bourbon barrel and finished for 6 month in a STR cask (Shaved, Toasted and Re-charred Red Wine Hogshead).
