The 100% Islay editions celebrate barley grown on site but once it’s harvested, the Kilchoman team also malt the barley using traditional floor malting techniques, first germinating and then smoking the barley, using local Islay peat, to give the whisky its 20 PPM lightly peated character. 


The 13th Edition was distilled from Kilchoman’s 2012, 2013 and 2014 barley harvests using the Publican barley varietal before being matured for a minimum of 8 years before 44 bourbon barrels were selected for this year’s release of bottles.


This latest 100% Islay edition is also the first release since 2019 where the distillery has opted for solely bourbon barrels. The 44 bourbon barrels that were selected are predominantly fresh casks, this gives the whisky lovely layers of buttery vanilla and caramel flavours which pair beautifully with the citrus sweetness of the spirit.


Kilchoman was the first distillery to be built on Islay for over 124 years and remains Islay’s only independent, family run distillery. Kilchoman is Islay’s Farm Distillery, the only distillery in Scotland to distil whisky from barley grown and malted on site.


Situated on Rockside Farm which covers around 3,000 acres on the north-west coast of Islay. Most of the area is marginal ground, only suitable for resilient breeds of cattle and sheep however they do have 200 acres of good-quality soil surrounding the distillery. It is here that they grow the barley for their annual 100% Islay editions.


Malt loaf, toffee apple, banana bread, citrus, lavender, pear
drops, sea salt and hints of peat smoke.

Fresh vanilla and fragrant peat smoke with caramel, barley
blossom, sultanas, and hints of spicy oak tannins.

Silky viscosity with fresh crumpets, butter, and honey
