    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 ...

    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.

    Tangible wine finish, aroma plays with subtle nuances, assertive taste, a small lack of aftertaste in the form of bitterness, which appears after 2-3 approaches.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Beautiful, rich, farm notes, sour-smoked peat, fresh, mint chill, soot, sweet smoke, wine-fruit, honey, pleasant salinity, red currants, ashes, pickled apples "White pour", dried salted meat, boiled condensed milk, vanilla, citrus (lemon, orange, grapefruit).
    • Taste
      87 87
      Sweet honey ash, bulky, assertive, then noticeably salty (salty caramel), tartaric acid is present.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Ash (sweet honey), smolders on the palate, long, berry, noticeably farm, oak, knits a little, over time, there is an obsessive bitter bitterness, which slightly spoils the feeling.
