  1. Mr.Edradour scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    That's really weird. Rating a 4 year old single malt, even if it is way above average, with 100 points! :-(

    Conclusion and pictures on: https://tomtrinkt.de
    • Nose
      Ashy-sweet smoke and abundant red fruits dominate my first impression. The strong alcohol content (50%) is well integrated. Even after many minutes, the smoke is still very present, which increasingly mixes with the red and dark fruits (forest fruit jam) and forms the aromatic skeleton. Burnt caramel, grapefruit, marzipan, a touch of nougat, dark chocolate (a bit reminiscent of Mozartkugeln), slightly earthy aromas (wet forest soil in the autumn) and hints of spicy oak wood notes join. The Kilchoman is not extremely complex, but so far very elegant and balanced.
    • Taste
      With a beautiful, oily texture, the Kilchoman spreads throughout the mouth. An intense sweetness slowly runs down the cheeks, while on the tip of the tongue a subtle Pfeffrigkeit begins and causes a slight tingling. The 50-pound smoke is now fully absorbed: Sweet-ashen, the whisky begins to work on the taste buds, before the red and dark fruits quickly gain in intensity. Fresh grapefruit and blood oranges make for a slightly acidic impact. Delicate hints of roasted aromas, dark chocolate and spicy oak complete the flavor variety. With the addition of a few drops of water, the barrels used now more clearly reveal their origin: the malt becomes fruity and wineier. Despite the strong alcohol and smoke I feel the Kilchoman as almost dangerous tasty. On the palate, a slight, but not disturbing, dryness is already perceptible.
    • Finish
      Long and smoky-sweet. Freshly ground pepper briefly flashes at the beginning, before the sweet ashy smoke and the red and dark fruits take hold of the scepter. Follow dark chocolate and some oak. The balance is right again here. Slowly, the malt ends and leaves a slight dryness.

  3. Archer scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    There are good to very good approaches to find, but it lacks depth to achieve top marks here. In my opinion, the wine barrel hides and conceals too many of the good kilochoman flavors.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Oops, the smoke has the red wine barrel cut but pretty nice. With such a young guy you should expect that he is going forward. Instead, it shows only a mild, slightly ashy and grape-sweet smoky note. A little malt and a cereal touch. Fir needles in the distance. A herbal mix.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Sweet and overripe grapes, ashen smoke. Fresh oak chips and menthol. Toffee, caramel. Greasy with time.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Rather short, still slightly smoky and with the sweetness of the grapes. Herbe herbs.

  8. larswehmeier scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      First ashy smoke. But then it is immediately sweet and fruity. The red wine is beautiful but not too dominant. Almost mild for a klichoman. Strawberries and raspberries. Fresh.
    • Taste
      Intense fruity and sweet. In addition the clearly defined smoke on the palate. Delicious!
    • Finish
      Dry but still mild. Medium. The smoke stays in the throat.
