for Whisky Live Tokyo 2013 […]

I have already dedicated a few posts to Tokyo International Bar Show & Whisky Live Tokyo 2013 but no worry I really like that event and have only good memories. I put on the blog tasting notes of special releases prepaired for the show eg. BenRiach 1985 Limited Realease TIBS and GlenDronach Single Cask 2002 TIBS. [caption id=attachment_1920 align=alignnone width=801] Kilchoman 5 years old for Tokyo International Bar Show & Whisky Live Tokyo 2013[/caption] As a matter of fact I have one more bottle from TIBS & Whisky Live Tokyo 2013. It is Kilchoman 5 years old Single Cask Release for Tokyo International Show & Whisky Live Tokyo 2013. [caption id=attachment_1922 align=alignnone width=801] Kilchoman 5 years old for Tokyo International Bar Show & Whisky Live Tokyo 2013[/caption] Kilchoman was established in 2005 and is the youngest distillery on Islay of Islay. As, it is a farm distillery (Rockside Farm), it is surrounded by cultivated fields, some barley used in production comes from here, also it is locally malted. Very nice and calm place. There is: visitors centre, shop and nice restaurant. In Kilchoman Distillery they use Bourbon barrles from Buffalo Trace Distillery, Kentucky, USA and sherry oloroso casks from Spain. Kilchoman 100% Islay is very interesting proposition – from barley, matling to bottling – everything on Islay of Islay.
