Kilchoman Am Bùrach
Kilchoman // Islay, Scotland
Kilchoman Am Bùrach is a one-off limited edition release for the brand and is the result of a stillman mistakenly blending port-matured Kilchoman into the Machir Bay release--a bourbon and sherry matured release. After this error, the resulting whisky was then matured a further 9 years in bourbon barrels before finishing for 6 months in ruby port casks. Kilchoman general manager, Islay Heads, declared this an "Am Bùrach"-- Gaelic for "the mess." Only 10,550 bottles were created, 1350 for the US. Available as of July 2020.
Single MaltDistilled in pot stills from 100% malted barley, produced at one distillery, aged in barrels; if Scotch or Irish, must be aged for at least three years.
