I had the privilege of meeting Kilchoman’s Owner and Director, Anthony Wills today at San Francisco’s The Whisky Shop. Mr. Wills is making a quick tour of the U.S. to promote Kilchoman’s Summer 2010 Release here in the states as well as offering single cask bottlings to a select few purveyors. The Whisky Shop is one of the lucky ones offering this young cask strength beauty which was distilled in July of 2007, aged in a bourbon barrel and bottled in August of this year. Even just a small sip told me this was excellent stuff, much like the Summer 2010 with perhaps even a bit more sweetness.
Sound good? If you’re in the Bay Area this Wednesday, November 10th, The Whisky Shop, along with Whiskies of the World Expo, is hosting a tasting at the City Club of San Francisco that will feature this single cask Kilchoman as well as several Signatory expressions.
