Kilchoman Fèis Ìle 2022

Kilchoman has unveiled its Fèis Ìle 2022 Release. The new bottling is the first 16-year-old whisky released by the distillery.

The Kilchoman Fèis Ìle 2022 Release is a combination of 5 first fill bourbon barrels filled in 2006. With just 7 casks filled in 2005, the barrels selected are some of the first 50 casks ever filled at the distillery and represent some of its earliest Scotch.

“I always try and find something special for the Feis Ile releases and with the return of people to Feis on Islay rather than exclusively online I thought the time was right to bottle some of our oldest casks. I’d love to keep these casks in the warehouse for my own person consumption, but they are too good not to share,” said Kilchoman founder Anthony Wills.

The Kilchoman Fèis Ìle 2022 Release which will be available from the distillery shop only (limited to one bottle per person) and is priced at £150 per 70cl bottle. Only 900 bottles of the expression have been created.

In February, Kilchoman unveiled its Madeira Cask Matured limited edition whisky. Only 17,000 bottles of the expression will be made available.

Earlier this month, Ardbeg unveiled its limited-edition Fèis Ìle festival whisky, Ardcore. The Scotch will make its official debut on Ardbeg Day, which is held once a year on the final Saturday of Islay’s annual Festival of Music and Malt, which will be held from May 27 to June 4.
