Kilchoman Madeira Cask Limited Release

Kilchoman Special Release Madeira Cask limited edition was distilled in May 2016 and matured for 5 years and 3 months in 46 fresh Madeira hogsheads, before being bottled at 50% abv in August 2021. It was peated to 50ppm and is non chill filtered.

“Kilchoman really lends itself to maturation in fortified wine casks. The rich fruity character of the casks balances nicely with the creamy citrus sweetness of our new spirit. My preference when using wine casks has always been to use fresh first fill barrels with a view to bottling the whisky relatively young. This approach means the lighter clean flavours and the fresh maritime peat smoke isn’t overwhelmed by the cask influence,” Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder.


Tasting Notes

Nose: Caramel, orange zest and ripe plums with hints of mixed spices and rich smoke.

Palate: Bright citrus zest and peach notes with raisins, walnuts, dark chocolate and integrated smoke.

Finish: Juicy fortified wine, burnt sugar, dark fruits with lingering smoked Christmas cake and Violet Crumble.
