Kilchoman 100% Islay – 5th Edition

The day started with one of Islay’s established distilleries that started in 1815. So a bookend to it would be ending with one of Islay’s newest distilleries, Kilchoman.

So I’ve never had Kilchoman 100% Islay – 5th Edition and was interested in it. I hadn’t had many of them, only having reviewed the third edition. And not looked up anything on them.

Turns out that 100% is an ongoing limited edition that comes out in editions. No shit, I hear you saying. However, did you know that it’s a vatting of ex-bourbon casks for the fifth edition? Boom, lawyered.

Also, the 100% Islay line is less peated than Machir Bay or Loch Gorm.

Less peat? This is where I hulk out, right?

Not completely. We’re well past the point of thinking bigger peat is better peat. There were some fun releases, but it’s time for nuance to reign supreme.
