Kilchoman | Sauternes Cask Finish 2012 | Bot. 2018
Kilchoman's special yearly releases are always popular and for good reason – the distillers know how to choose great casks. This 2018 Sauternes release is a vatting of just 30 casks, matured first in ex-bourbon casks before a five-month finish in fresh Sauternes hogsheads. Those five months layered even more toffee, vanilla and caramel on top of the bourbon-matured spirit, creating a rich, sweet and complex dram, with big Kilchoman smoke and citrus.
