Islay Scotch whisky distillery Kilchoman has released details of the ninth whisky launch across its 100% Islay range. 

The 9th Edition has been distilled using barley crops from 2007 and 2009 and matured in 43 ex-Bourbon barrels for more than nine years. About 12,000 bottles will be released.

The Kilchoman 100% Islay collection first began in 2011 and comprises a range of malts distilled solely from barley grown in the distillery's surrounding fields. 

"Our 100% Islay spirit pairs seamlessly with ex-Bourbon barrels. The lower peating level (20ppm) allows the natural floral sweetness of the spirit to shine through whilst a higher age profile adds layers of overripe tropical fruit and stewed plums," said Anthony Wills, Kilchoman founder and master distiller.  

Last month, the Scotch whisky distillery doubled its annual capacity to 480,000 litres of alcohol after completing a one-year expansion project.
