This one may well be the best, at least for those who are fans of cask strength offerings.

Kilchoman said its Original Cask Strength release is a five year old vatting “of ex-bourbon barrels bottled at 59.2% ABV.” A total of 9,200 bottles are being released globally, pricing around $110. What’s in bottle is non-chill filtered in addition to being at cask strength.

Tasting notes, for those interested, indicate that “the nose and palate have soft peat packed full of ripe fruit and citrus notes with a long clean finish.”
