Whisky Reviews for Kilchoman 2007
7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.36 points
- Wow what a grotesque Kilchoman, nose and taste far enough apart, but I like it!
Pine needles, juniper, camphor, citruses, salted caramel and vanilla.
Dirty sherry. Peat, earth, burnt tire, cocoa, pepper and mint.
Long, peaty, spicy.

- Kilchoman Tasting Notes
Char-grilled bananas, barbecue sauce and caramelised mackerel skins combine in this whisky's dense aroma.
Dark, heavy fruit from the sherry cask has integrated with the spirit's soft citrus and rich tobacco smoke, creating a full but perfectly balanced peaty dram.
Ooh, an independent 10yo Kilchoman. Browsing through Whiskybase, I see that the Kilchoman distillery released their inaugural cask #1 10yo in 2015 WB/link, with the highest bid for a bottle reaching £7000. Furthermore, there were a fair number of 10yo private casks as well as two 10yo Kilchoman Club editions released in 2016 & 2017 respectively. As far as I know, this is the first independent 10yo Kilchoman release.
N: 'Taste the difference’ [grapey] olive oil, vegetal-sweet icing sugar, redcurrant juice, dense dough, straw [and hair from a rabbit hutch - Nick], pickled onions, old wax, kerosine, struck matches, popped balloons, tarry Laphroaig,...
T: B’loonies, kerosine, petroleum, coal tar,..
F: We are soon into the finish and plateauing very cleanly on sweet corn, struck matches and smokey honey.
C: A bit bonkers and well worth a look in.Scores a B-
- Quite an in your face dram that'll surely please the peat enthusiast.
Peat (fairly medicinal) and charcoal with pineapple, smoked bacon and caramel. It has a layer of spiciness, with cracked black peppercorns, but also some cloves. There's some oranges here, as well as vanilla and a whiff of pine and tar.
Yup, there's iodine here too, but burnt rubber and peat smoke too. The sherry cask has infused a sweetness into the spirit, but there's also smoky, charred barbecue meat and black pepper.
Long with lots of peat and some heat from the spices, before calming down and revealing subtle red fruits and hints of caramel.
