Kilchoman’s limited edition Sauternes Cask Finish was released on Monday 1st October (2018).
The Sauternes Cask Finish was initially matured in ex-bourbon barrels before being transferred into fresh Sauternes hogsheads for five months prior to bottling. This finishing period allowed the caramel and vanilla influence of bourbon barrels to be accentuated by the buttery sweetness of the dessert wine casks. Meanwhile the classic peat smoke and citrus character of the Kilchoman spirit brings a distinct depth and punch to the whisky, emphasised at the increased strength of 50%.
The Sauternes Cask Finish is limited to 10,000 bottles. A neck tag details the number of bottles, casks, ages and cask types used in the vatting.
