The first STR release from Kilchoman, this limited edition was matured in 'STR' casks - a specific formula of shaving, toasting and re-charring casks pioneered pioneered by the late whisky icon Jim Swan.
Kilchoman founder Anthony Wills said, "The STR cask balances influence from both the new and used oak to create a powerful combination of rich fruit, oak, spice and maritime peat smoke."
The release was vatted from 43 hogsheads filled 2012 and bottled 2019. 14,500 bottles worldwide at 50%.
Nose: Summer fruits with a hearty measure of cinnamon spice, toffee and gentle peat smoke.
Palate: Soft caramel at first with layers of red berries, lemon tart and earthy peat smoke.
Finish: Long with a pronounced spice, honey and caramel notes.
