Founders Cask Release Single Sherry Cask #642 Single Malt Scotch Whisky
This limited release Islay single malt is the first in the Founders Cask Series. There will be a new edition each year for five years, handpicked by different members of the family that run the Kilchoman farm distillery.
The inaugural outturn for 2018 was chosen by Kathy Wills, the wife of owner Anthony Wills, who has been described as “the un-seen heartbeat of the distillery”. She selected Oloroso Sherry Cask #642 that has matured Kilchoman’s peaty malt for over nine years and yielded a minuscule 643 bottles. This cask strength winter warmer is remarkably smooth, displaying earthy peat, sweet Christmas pudding fruit, toasted nuts, spiced Mexican chocolate and the waft of smoke from the chimneys of Scottish fishing villages. Officially launched at London Olympia in July 2018, there are precious few of these bottles still available. With the series set to become immensely collectable, don’t miss out on this rare first release.
Established in 2005, Kilchoman (pronounced Kil-ho-man) is one of Scotland’s smallest distilleries and was the first to open on Islay for over 120 years. They handcraft artisan single malt whisky – from barley to bottle – on a largely self-sufficient farm. Water comes from the Allt Gleann Osamail burn, Concerto barley is grown and harvested on site, they are one of only a handful of distilleries still practising floor malting, peat is cut from the local bog, and leftover draff from the mash tun is fed to their herd.
