Kilchoman Vintage 2010, 9y. The 2010 Vintage is a vatting of 45 casks, all filled in 2010. It consists of 42 fresh bourbon barrels and 3 oloroso sherry butts, bottled at 48% Vol. with no chill filtration or colouring (as with all Kilchoman bottlings), 15,000 bottles, 50ppm. Until the previous vintage release, 2009 Vintage, the range had been matured exclusively in bourbon barrels however this year’s edition, as with the 2009 Vintage, is a vatting of both bourbon and sherry casks, this time roughly 85/15 bourbon/sherry casks. The balance of bourbon and sherry maturation is a tried and tested combination, it allows for both the vanilla and citrus flavours from the bourbon barrels and the rich, spicy influence of the oloroso sherry casks to balance and complement one another. Our core range of Machir Bay and Sanaig single malts both contain varying influences of these casks with a range of different ages in the vattings, however the 2010 Vintage stands out as an age-statement whisky, a minimum of 9 years old.
