The 2010 vintage of Kilchoman has been bottled at 9 years of age after maturing in 42 Bourbon Barrels (85%) and 3 Sherry Butts (15%), before bottling at 48% without colouring or chill-filtering.
"We’ve been launching single vintage releases for a number of years, they are some of my favourite Kilchoman expressions, mostly because they’re classic Kilchoman but also because each marks the development in the age profile of our maturing casks.
"The 2010 Vintage is a vatting of 45 casks, all filled in 2010. It consists of 42 fresh bourbon barrels and 3 oloroso sherry butts, bottled at 48% abv with no chill filtration or colouring (as with all Kilchoman bottlings). A total of 15,000 bottles will be available worldwide from October 16th.
"Until the previous vintage release, 2009 Vintage, the range had been matured exclusively in bourbon barrels however this year’s edition, as with the 2009 Vintage, is a vatting of both bourbon and sherry casks, this time roughly 85/15 bourbon/sherry casks. The balance of bourbon and sherry maturation is a tried and tested combination for us, it allows for both the vanilla and citrus flavours from the bourbon barrels and the rich, spicy influence of the oloroso sherry casks to balance and complement one another."
