Whisky Reviews for Kilchoman 2009

16 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.75 points

  1. YuraLM scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Well balanced and simple whisky. Comparing to young brothers it has smoke and become more familiar with  whisky from Isla island. But still it lacks of endurance
    • Nose
      Smoky sea notes, ointment of Vishnevsky, sea algae, smell of the sea. At the end you can feel sauteed apples
    • Taste
      Sweet, a little bit of smoke, small bitter, malt notes
    • Finish
      Long-lasting enough, taste of coal, ash, malt

  2. Dyno scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    88-89, ... still delicious after G&B whisky festival 2018 ...

  3. Gilles_V scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    New tasting after two months (opening of the bottle): positive development.
    Islay well done, typical but lacks complexity.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Peat, peat and peat. Quite one-dimensional but pleasant and qualitative.

      Makizushi seaweed.
      Licorice tip? Perhaps.
      After a while, cereal.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Peat, hint of salt. Wrap the mouth well. Success.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Quite long, warm and intense.

  4. Gilles_V scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    We must salute the efforts to produce an authentic whisky. It seems to me that it is felt in the barley. But compared to the “old” distilleries, this Kilchoman is too smooth. It lacks experience to be endearing.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Lots of freshness (seaside), peat and cereals.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Oily
    • Finish
      75 75
      Quite long but sometimes a little "metallic" flavor.

  6. Willum scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

  7. Ivynor scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    A Kilchoman a little disappointing considering the age, even if it remains a good product.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Nose quite sweet, mineral, rather austere. The peat is quite thin, but set back. Iodized traces.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Mouth a little lemony, slightly creamy, reminiscent of dry white wine type chardonnay. End of mouth more interesting, floral, although rather bitter.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Final short and dry, little greedy. Iodized and smoked traces.

  8. Kovalyoff scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Is simple. 85
    Nose: burnt matches, wine, grass, wax, honey ...
    Taste: pleasant
    Finish: weak

  9. Luigisim scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      86 86
      Smell of wet dog. Strange but intense and balanced
    • Taste
      85 85
      Baked rice, sweet tomato puree
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium, maybe a bit too net

  10. Archer scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    It's not a mistake to run a Kilchoman through one or the other sherry barrel.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Sweetish smoke with slight Hubba Bubba gum note. But this impression fades, he turns quickly into the hearty, spicy one. Smoked ham, chain fat, hot tar paper. Lemonade, honey. A freshly mown meadow. A rich and thick nose, the smoke not restrained, but not too dominant.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Black Forest ham, lemon slices from the chimney. Ashy smoke. In the beginning already relatively dry. Machine oil, seaweed, salt, bitter chocolate.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium long, smoky, lemony. Still the spicy and very appetizing ham note resonates. Lemon slices, peppered with cloves.
