    Kilchoman is a new distillery built in 2005.

    I've heard about Kilchoman-- small farm distillery whose spirit isn't likely to make it to the US, from what I've been hearing.

    I didn't know Bruichladdich re-opened the Port Charlotte distillery, though. Any idea what character of malt they will be producing?

    I didn't care for Bunnahabhain, but I did like Bruichladdich's very lightly peated stuff, like the 15 yr Second Edition (Sauternes) and the Infinity (Rioja) and the 17 year (bourbon finish).
