Whisky Reviews for Kilchoman 2012

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.17 points

  1. Dris scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Lively but youngish, the light sherry is most present in the form of glucose sweetness. The smoke is rather intriguing showing complex sandalwood and bonfire aromas. Vanilla anf fudge constitutes the base.
    By volume the ratio of sherry- to bourbon matured whisky might be closer to 2:3 here.

  2. Andytka3 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    N- Liked the masculine present at first sniff. Husky, malt and straw mat with choking smoke dusts. Sweet liquorice and berries jam, as well the iodine, tarry rope and smoked herring fishy notes swirling up at heart. Get fuller with more iodine and paper ash at the tail. Another young, heavily peated and high strength monster as it should be. (88/22)

    P- Firm grip and biting with melting dried fruit sweetness, remains at high notes with intense gingery heat that going on and on. Lasting ashy nuance with dry hay. (87/21)

    F- Medium-long, despite the aggressiveness shows on the palate, finishing was surprisingly soothing. Some sulphury cabbage notes linger, chewy mints and spicy bitter coffee after taste. (87/21)

    B/B- 87/21

    Cereal- 3, Fruity- 1, Floral- 1, Peaty- 4, Feinty- 1, Sulphury- 1, Woody- 3, Winery- 3, Spicy- 4

    It's a bit unusual flavors, CS needed, but it's a bit hard without water.
