Kilchoman STR Cask Matured is a single malt release created by the late Dr. Jim Swan. The whisky fully matured in red wine hogsheads, but the STR formula was applied to the barrels: Shaving, Toasting, and Re-charring of those hogsheads. A total of 43 casks were filled in 2012 and the whisky was bottled without chill-filtration at 50% ABV.
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.
