This single malt was initially matured in ex-bourbon barrels before being transferred into fresh Sauternes hogsheads for five months prior to bottling. This finishing period allows the caramel and vanilla influence of bourbon barrels to be accentuated by the buttery sweetness of the dessert wine casks.
Meanwhile the classic peat smoke and citrus character of the Kilchoman spirit brings a distinct depth and punch to the whisky, emphasised at the increased strength of 50% abv.
In this case, the Sauternes Cask Finish is a combination of 30 bourbon barrels married in Sauternes wine casks for five months before bottling.
There is an incredible combination of earthy smoke from the peated spirit and intense fruit notes from the cask.
