Distilled in 2012, the Red Wine Cask Matured has spent its full maturation term in the single cask type rather than being a finish.

The casks, from the Douro Valley in Portugal, were personally selected by Kilchoman Founder Anthony Wills. The Red Wine Cask Matured follows Port, Madeira and Sauternes matured expressions released annually since 2014.

As with all of the Kilchoman range, the Red Wine Cask Matured is peated and non chill filtered with this particular release having a natural coppery red colour as a result of extraction from the oak casks. This expression has been bottled at 50% ABV, slightly stronger than our typical 46% ABV, the higher bottling strength adding structure and intensity to the dram.

Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder “we are delighted with the Red Wine Cask Matured, it’s unlike anything we’ve bottled previously, the full-flavoured influence of the Douro valley red wine casks have added depth, body and layers of rounded cooked fruits to the classic Kilchoman citrus sweetness and peat smoke character.”

The Red Wine Cask Matured is bottled at 50% ABV and will be available worldwide from the 9th of October. Get in touch with your local whisky shop to ensure you get a bottle! A small number of bottles will also be available directly from our website from noon on Monday the 9th priced at £76.80.
