Kilchoman PX Sherry Cask Matured 2021 47.3%

£74.95

Bottle size 70CL
The PX Sherry Cask Matured is a vatting of 33 casks, 9 fully matured in Pedro Ximénez casks and 24 finished in PX casks for between 12 and 18 months.
Bottling Year 2021
Whilst we’ve released a number of Pedro Ximénez single casks over the years, this is the first time we’ve vatted multiple casks together for a global release. Anthony and Robin have spent many days in the warehouses tasting endless numbers of casks to find the perfect balance of character, constructing a whisky that showcases the rich sweet flavours of Pedro Ximénez sherry but also reflects the signature flavours of our 50ppm spirit.
Number of Bottles Produced 12000
Having tasted numerous combinations, Anthony and Robin eventually settled on a vatting of roughly 2/3rds finished casks from 2013 and 1/3rd full maturation casks from 2015. The older casks have more layered depth of character compared to the big-hitting 2015 full maturation casks, combining the two produces the perfect balance of maritime smoke, citrus, berries and rich dark honey sweetness.
ABV% 47.3%
Anthony and Robin settled on a strength of 47.3% abv after tasting samples at various strengths. At 47.3% the whisky had more assertiveness and allowed for the natural citrus character of the Kilchoman spirit to shine through.
Age NAS
Pedro Ximénez casks aren’t always the easiest to work with. That was why we decided on a combination of full maturation and finishing, to balance the distinct PX influence with that of our spirit. I’m delighted with the result; big and bold but with a delightful poise and balance of flavour. Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder & MD
