  1. hs305 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    [September, 2018] Somehow I always struggle with malts distilled in rather small stills like Edradour - I never had an Edradour that really charmed my taste buds (maybe this is simply not my preferred style of whisky). Kilchoman runs comparable small stills and they produce a high quality spirit for sure but again I never found one of their releases truly great (but a lot of other connoisseurs do!)...

    ...and this fits into that row. It is a fine and obviously flawless whisky but it is simply not my style and it is hard to tell why. But if you like very sugary sweet and moderately peaty drams this one is certainly for you...
    • Nose
      84 84
      The colour is russetmuscat and the nose offers a young and fresh peaty profile with some minor sherry notes. It smells like a young whisky (indeed, it is a young whisky!) but somehow it lacks the power and boldness that can turn even an underaged dram into a star. The sherry and peat are not yet integrated finally and it seems as if they still fight each other for dominance (the peat clearly wins). Water increases the supremacy of the peat even more and it turns the nose into an one-dimensional affair.
    • Taste
      85 85
      The taste is very sweet on mainly barley sugars with significant peaty notes and rather shy sherry-induced flavours. It is a little simple, actually two-dimensional only. It is not too bad and easy sippable but it lacks both different layers and some complexity to be above average (according to my taste buds). Some water turns both the taste and finish even sweeter and releases more bitter wooden notes - clearly I prefer the neat dram.
    • Finish
      85 85
      The dram arrives warming and coating in the mouth with a minor bitter-astringent feeling from the woods. The finish is long and adds some spices that pep up the sweet taste nicely. Again, not much sherry to detect beside the sugars and peat. The end is a little drying from bitter tannins.

  2. wisekycourse scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    5 years with Sherry sherry finish!
    • Nose
      strong and fruity peat, yellow fruits, lime
      peppery spices
    • Taste
      fruit on the macerated lemon, a little rotten even
      the peat is fresh and fat at the same time, a little on the Ardbeg and Laphroaig
      spices still in place and strong
      the discreet malt, the woody comes back leaving a feeling of old wood soaked!
    • Finish
      long enough, with peat omni present and cooked fruit, maderized, it's good and it lasts.

  3. Dris scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Nicely selected casks. Deep oloroso notes, dried figs, prunes, and walnut brittle. Clean sweet smoke. Subtle spicy oakiness.

  4. Achany scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Fine dram. peaty, salty and a lot of sherry. the peat is really nice, salty and even some hints of bacon, that mingles nicley with the sherry, the finish is long and peaty. but still. I am missing something in this young Kilchomans. (WSZ18)

  5. ctu scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Nice oloroso maturing, but a bit thin at 46% ABV.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Peat, eucalyptus, sherry, citrus and forest fruits.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Peat, herbals, sherry, salted caramel, pepper and ginger.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium length, spicy, smoky.

  6. Malinois scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Tasted Kilchoman Euro Tour 4 Oktober 2018 Heers

    Pure Oloroso sherry casks used.
    • Nose
      Light sulfur (goes away after 2 sips), citrus after a time, dried red fruits
    • Taste
      Spices, dried red fruits, something 'thick sherry oaked' I associate with modern sherry
    • Finish
      Spices followed citrus and peat, a little sea breeze

    Spicy and sweet, a very nice combination of sherry and smoke.

  9. Fight65 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

  10. Opeth83 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very nice and soft, more mature then other years. I hope they will launch a standard 10 y old Loch Gorm.
