Talking about their latest exclusive bottling, Abbey Whisky Company Director Mike Sharples said: “Established in 2005, Kilchoman distillery holds true to tradition, it’s one of only a handful of distilleries to still practice floor maltings; they even grow their own barley! We’ve always greatly admired Islay's farm distillery and what it stands for, so to team up and release this wonderful dram makes us incredibly proud indeed!”
He went on to say: “The PX finish on this release works a treat, softening things down a little but still allowing the dram to hold the traditional taste & characteristics you would expect from a Kilchoman whisky of this age. A perfect combination. To say we’re excited would be a huge understatement! Our very own cask of Kilchoman, and boy it’s a beaut!”
Limited to 270 bottles the Kilchoman 2009 PX Finish Single Cask Abbey Whisky Exclusive is now available via their website www.abbeywhisky.com for £78.95.
