The Islay based Kilchoman Distillery, has announced the launch of a new limited-edition Madeira cask matured single malt Scotch whisky.

Kilchoman Madeira Cask Matured (50% ABV) was distilled in May 2016 and matured for 5 years and 3 months in 46 Madeira hogsheads.

Kilchoman had planned to release the Madeira Cask Matured in late 2021, but it was delayed due to a bottle shortage.

Commenting on the launch, Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder, said: “Kilchoman really lends itself to maturation in fortified wine casks. The rich fruity character of the casks balances nicely with the creamy citrus sweetness of our new spirit. My preference when using wine casks has always been to use fresh first fill barrels with a view to bottling the whisky relatively young. This approach means the lighter clean flavours and fresh maritime peat smoke aren’t overwhelmed by the cask influence.”

Kilchoman Madeira Cask Matured, will be available from March 2nd, through specialist retailers, for a RRP of £77.05.
