Cask Typeex-red wine casks
"Red wine finishes are unusual in Scotch whisky, but a Scotch aged in entirely in red wine casks? That's a unique release. This dram has Kilchoman's typical peatiness, layered here with notes of fruit, dark chocolate, and oak. This is a higher proof than the usual Kilchoman release, but that extra heat works well here. It's a spicy Islay, definitely of the sort one might end the night with."
