Rarity KILCHOMAN Inaugural Release Of

KILCHOMAN Inaugural Release Of 46%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Islay, 70cl, Ref: COL15359

The first new distillery to be opened on the island for 124 years, Kilchoman set up shop at the Rockside farm in June 2005. Around a third of the barley it uses is produced and malted on site. Fittingly named Inaugural Release, this version distilled in 2006 and released on 9 September 2009 was matured in bourbon casks for two and a half to three years, before being finished for six months in sherry casks. Respecting the carefree nature of a young yet confident spirit, the palette of flavours and aromas proudly reflects its island character, moving from very intense smoke to oily and cocoa peat.

Profile: the refined initial nose is characterized by intense smoke. Medicinal (camphor), lemony and vanilla once allowed to breathe, it becomes more profoundly peaty. The elegant attack on the palate is full of peaty energy. Gradually, vanilla and juicy pears bring lots of freshness to the mid-palate. The serene finish is chocolatey. The peat has become oily and cocoaed. Very mineral, its agave notes bring a mezcal to mind.

Tasting note

  • Appearance : golden yellow.
  • Nose : lively, refined. On the initial nose, an intense smoke covers the aromatic palette. Notes of slate, citrus fruit, camphor (lemon, grapefruit), vanilla and liquorice gradually pierce through this veil. Allowed to breathe, the peat becomes more present. It is rooty (gentian) and saline. In the background, tiger balm and clove highlight its medicinal, spicy character.
  • Palate : sharp, elegant. After a very lively attack in which peat plays the leading role, the palate becomes increasingly unctuous. Next, vanilla, juicy pear and white grape feed a very fresh mid-palate. At the end of the palate, agave, cut grass and aromatic plants (sage, savory) bring out its vegetal character.
  • Overall : long, very peaceful. At the start of the finish, dark chocolate, lichen and a hint of seaweed bring incredible nuance to a now oily and cocoa peat. Very mineral (slate), clearly reminiscent of a mezcal (Tobala agave). The retronasal olfaction wavers between Mirabelle plum jam, fresh walnut, cigar smoke and grilled meat. The empty glass is intensely floral (lily, lilac, lily of the valley), exotic (banana, pineapple) and empyreumatic (pine, cedar).

The brand

The first distillery built on the Isle of Islay for over a century, Kilchoman celebrated its third birthday in September 2009, with its new spirit finally reaching the age required for it to be legally called a single malt. Built using the model of a “farmhouse-distillery”, Kilchoman makes a point of distilling its new spirit from barley grown on its own land. Some 100 tonnes are harvested and malted at the distillery, providing 30% of their needs. The rest comes from the maltings at Port Ellen. Its first barrel of new make spirit was filled in 2005.
