Distilled in 2012, the Red Wine Cask Matured has spent its full maturation term in the single cask type rather than being a finish.
The casks, from the Douro Valley in Portugal, were personally selected by Kilchoman Founder Anthony Wills. The Red Wine Cask Matured.
Limtied to just 7000 bottles & as with all of the Kilchoman range, the Red Wine Cask Matured is peated and non chill filtered with this particular release having a natural coppery red colour as a result of extraction from the oak casks. This expression has been bottled at 50% ABV, slightly stronger than their typical 46% ABV, the higher bottling strength adding structure and intensity to the dram.
The nose has that initial hit of Kilchoman smoke as you would expect but then the influence of wine shows through with juicy berry fruits & chocolate waves, the palate keeps the theme going with sweet spice strawberry & more milk chocolate. absoloutly wonderful stuff & all topped with a long, sweet & fruity finish.
