Kilchoman are excited to announce the final general release of 2015 (the club release is still to come…!) and it is something special – our first ever Madeira cask matured release! We have selected just 17 first fill ex-Madeira barrels that were filled in 2011 and bottled these at 50%abv.
These casks have spent their full maturation period in the ex-Madeira wine barrels.
Only 6100 bottles will be available worldwide and hopefully landing in your local retailers very soon! A small amount will be available from our website on Monday 5th October at 10am. The price is £69 per bottle and limited to one bottle per person.
The Madeira Cask Matured follows the release of the Port Cask Matured in 2014 and is an example of our belief in full maturation in cask types typically employed by distilleries for finishing.
Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder “This release is a break from the norm for us, it represents a bit of an experiment with full maturation rather than simply finishing whisky in casks like Madeira. Full maturation means that the impact of the cask is that much greater, the challenge is to ensure the whisky remains balanced and the influence of the Madeira cask is integrated with that of the Kilchoman spirit.”
