Kilchoman PX Sherry Cask
Pedro Ximénez casks aren’t always the easiest to work with. That was why we decided on a combination of full maturation and finishing, to balance the distinct PX influence with that of our spirit.I’m delighted with the result; big and bold but with a delightful poise and balance of flavour.
Anthony Wills, Kilchoman Founder & MD
