  1. mothers_finest scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Difficult!
    I like Kilchoman and I like Port! And everyone who knows me knows, Port and smoke makes me wet. So I went again this time and ordered a bottle of my dummy - in the end actually get what I should have expected, but did not expect; Namely, better Bramble liqueur - a liqueur that consists of Bramble; but this whisky is in 'hardly anything' ... Can one drink this port Matured? Answer: YES! Are there better things for this price? Answer: YES! (and more harmonic stuff anyway). Like I said, the Bramble and the Kilcho Port mentioned above do not take away so much in the end. Especially the nose and finish are frighteningly similar; Considering that the Bramble is set with New Make ... So I can only warn you here. Those who award high marks here have not drunk good Port Matured Whiskys. Shit definitely tastes different - nevertheless, I find the invoked price (80 €) for this malt at least 100% to much ... Is it now up to you who you believe? Collectors buy everything anyway, without a plan ...

    A juvenile nose, with moist peat. It works a bit nasty, on bacon and rotting plants (yet it isn't as bad as that sounds). There is a mild sea breeze in the nose, and further oak, vanilla, and a combination of lemon and strawberries.

    The taste: medium to full-bodied, rather saline/briny with moist peat, wood, bacon, and still a rather odd combination of lemon and strawberry: sour strawberries? 

    Finish: medium, and quit acidic. The combination of lemon and strawberry puzzles the mind. It's not the best combination, especially if it's mixed with dirty, saline peat and plain wood.

  3. Xaver did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    I think that to the point, tasty and horny! And that with 4 years. Respect!
    • Nose
      Sweet, aromatic, full of pipe smoke. Smoked ham, a little salt and sour berries. Fruity, smoky, horny nose. With some time in the glass, the flavors become clearer and the smoke takes a step backwards. I have raspberry and redcurrants with smoked chocolate. In the background is ginger and brings a fresh spiciness.
    • Taste
      Strong, smoky start. But also beautiful oily occupying. In the taste the berries are more sweetish. Pair of splashes of lemon and some pepper. The chocolate in the taste, then rather cocoa. The salted ham is also there. The taste of ham reminds me a lot, of an extra Honigpanade. I do not know where the alcohol is. Very tasty in the whole.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Oily and smoky. Fruity berry sweetness and a trace of salt. Minimal spice plays in the background.

  4. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    In sum, a very harmonious whisky. I do not really like port and smoke, but it fits.
    Blindtasting
    • Nose
      In the nose next peat immediately vinous aromas, berries and a little vanilla.
    • Taste
      Slightly sweet in the mouth, slightly sourish fruitiness, peat.
    • Finish
      The finish is nutty, vinous, bittersweet with beautiful smoke.

  6. talyn256 did not rate this whisky Member Senior

    I’m a big fan of this style of whisky – it’s raw and punchy and full of the aromas of the outdoors.
    • Nose
      Redcurrants, Easter egg chocolate, dirty puddles, leaf litter, engine grease, bonfire smoke, and nicotine.
    • Taste
      Tobacco and maple syrup. A smoky serving of spices: cinnamon, clove, white pepper. An acidic red-wine edge to it – like a peppery Shiraz.
    • Finish
      Chewy, earthy peat that lasts and lasts.

  8. LordBellamy scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    with water: ohh, yes! Amazingly, despite its just four years, it does not decompose when added to water, but opens and reveals a wonderfully creamy vanilla, the initial tingling in the nose disappears. The peat gets light tar / Asphaltanklänge

    Conclusion: He can not match my discretion with the 2014 Port Cask, which I found more coherent. Nevertheless, here again a commendation to the distillery. Amazing how the malt presents after just 4 years in the barrel. Many young whiskys literally disintegrate when water is added or they get a metallic undertone. This here, however, opens, gets softer and gets to the peated strawberries still a nice vanilla flavor. I like it, but it's not a real cracker - 85 points
    • Nose
      Nose: peated strawberries, forest soil, creme brulee with lemon zest, herbs, some white pepper and subtle tingling alcohol, grassy undertones
    • Taste
      Taste: red fruit jelly (strawberries and red currant), then the heavy earthy smoke typical of Kilchoman, hardly any oak
    • Finish
      Finish: medium, also dominated by two notes, the erdiuge peat and red fruits, behind the back he is spicy with saddle leather, cigar box and pencil abrasion

  10. Gerhans scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    Pretty outstanding dram, especially considering it's only 4 years old. The port finish is phenomenal. It complements the dram, it doesn't dominate it. As with all drams I tasted by them, Kilchoman does not fail to impress!
    • Nose
      First off, that typical Kilchoman farm-y earthiness and peat combined with fresh red fruit. A little alcohol on the nose, and some very interesting citrus notes. Some fresh tobacco and a faint hint of mint.
    • Taste
      Very bold red fruit and citrus notes with pepper, smoke and vanilla. With some added water the mouthfeel becomes very creamy and oily, which is definitely a plus. 
    • Finish
      Long and spicy. Definitely some mint in the finish, together with cooked red fruit, and again some vanilla tobacco. The taste that lingers is dark, sweet and smoky.
