Kilchoman STR Cask Matured
Peated Single Malt
Kilchoman // Islay, Scotland
Kilchoman STR Cask Matured is a single malt release created by the late Dr. Jim Swan. The whisky fully matured in red wine hogsheads, but the STR formula was applied to the barrels: Shaving, Toasting, and Re-charring of those hogsheads. A total of 43 casks were filled in 2012 and the whisky was bottled without chill-filtration at 50% ABV.
Peated Single Malt100% malted barley from a single distillery. Dried with peat.
Cask Typered wine hogsheads
"Kilchoman's signature application of peat is front and center on the nose with a welcoming waft of malty sweetness and champagne tobacco. A sturdy wood char aroma from the STR process emerges and opens the door for some exciting flavors on the palate. Red pepper, brine, and dark olive are all bundled together in a delightfully rich spirit that brings to mind antipasti flavors. A celebratory tribute to Dr. Swan from the Kilchoman team!"
