Review #1008 – Kilchoman 100% Islay, 8th Edition

This is a release made from 100% Islay ingredients. Typically, barley is sourced from other providers in Scotland, but this batch comes from Islay. It is peated to 15-25ppm, rather than the standard 55ppm. This is matured for at least 6 years, although it is not on the label, and spends its time maturing in Buffalo Trace ex-bourbon barrels. It is bottled without filtering or coloring. It also gets a nice bump in proof, as well.
