An extraordinary Islay single malt that in this day and age is uniquely made using barley that's grown, harvested, malted, distilled and matured all at a single farm distillery! Lightly peated in comparison to other Kilchomans, this 6th edition was filled into ex-Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels in 2010 and bottled in 2016.
The Kilchoman distillery (pronounced Kil-ho-man) is a distillery that produces single malt Scotch whisky on Islay, an island of the Inner Hebrides. The distillery is situated on the western side of Islay, near the small settlement of Kilchoman. The distillery began production in June 2005, and was the first to be built on the island of Islay in 124 years. The distillery uses barley grown on site at Rockside Farm and malted at the distillery, as well as malt from the Port Ellen maltings and it releases separate bottlings depending on the source of the grain. It is one of only six Scottish distilleries still doing traditional floor-maltings, and will be unique in having all parts of the process - growing barley, malting, distilling, maturing and bottling - carried out on Islay.
