“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 flavors and fresh maritime peat smoke aren’t overwhelmed by the cask influence.”—Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder & Master Distiller
