First distillery built on Islay, 125 years ago, Kilchoman has been built as a “farm-distillery” and grows its own barley.

About 100 tons are harvested and malted at the distillery, 30% of the distillery’s needs. The rest is supplied by the Port Ellen malt-house. It is also part of the 6 last distilleries operating with traditional malting processes. In 2009, Kilchoman crafted its first recognized Single Malt. Kilchoman is one of the smallest distilleries of Scotland with an annual production of about 100.000 liters.

Nose: racy and tasty, iodized and saline, the first nose reveals peat and delicate smoke. Gradually, spices (black pepper, ginger), salt and smoked malted barley grains rise to the surface. Over time, a very nice fruity oxidation (pineapple) highlights many aromatic plants (chamomile, verbena, sage).

Palate: abundantly fruity (apple, plum), the attack on the palate is also green (green barley). In the mid-palate, blocks of peat impregnated with seaweed and truffled with spray literally roll on the palate. A few white flowers (lily, iris), rushes and even bamboo shoots punctuate the finish in a beautifully pictorial manner.

Finish: long and airy. Very lactic (coconut, porridge), the start of the finish is refreshed by the tangy juice of many citrus fruits (lemon and yellow grapefruit). Then, smoke vapors, ashes and a liquorice peat cover an aftertaste full of mineral salts.
