100% homegrown.
 
Kilchoman (pron. Kil-Ho-Man), is the first distillery to be established on Islay in over 124 years. It was started in 2005 by Anthony Wills, who ran an independent single cask bottling company for 8 years and was immersed in building the ultimate farm distillery where he’d take Whisky back to its roots.
 
The Kilchoman distillery is unique for several reasons. It's one of only six Scotch distilleries to carry out traditional floor maltings, and one of only two to do the malting, distilling, maturing and bottling on site. Furthermore, they even grow 30% of their Barley right there on the farm. It’s also one of the smallest Scotch distilleries, with an annual output of 120,000 liters. If you like “small batch” and “artisanal” Spirits, when it comes to single malts this is as good as it gets. They've been rocking it ever since they started, and they are racking up the awards to prove it.   
 
The first thing you have to always remember is that Kilchoman is — without a doubt — an Islay, with all that this entails. If you are new to the world of Whisky, this means that the malted barley is dried by or exposed to peat smoke. In the case of Kilchoman 100% Islay all the barley they use for it is grown beside their distillery… Now that is awesome! Aged in casks that held Buffalo Trace Bourbon for 6 years this Islay malt is really something more

Appearance / Color
Medium amber.

Nose / Aroma / Smell
Smoke with lots of chocolate. Barley is also quite strong and there are some sweet sensations tingling around.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The peat really comes alive but in a gentle, right way. Put some spices on top and you get one hell of an Islay ride.

Finish
Some menthol like freshness evolves in this clean long peaty, smoky finish.
