  1. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Sweet, vanilla, smoke ;-)
    I only had better malts in a jar today, but that shouldn't make any difference. I would pour it myself or order it in the bar if the opportunity arises.
    • Nose
      Sweet, vanilla, smoke, so very straightforward Ex-Bourbon Kilchoman, slightly grassy, like a sweetened herbal tea, the smoke is dry and slightly sour, a breeze of cinnamon
    • Taste
      Sweet, vanilla, smoke, really sweet, yellow fruit, creamy, overripe peach, here also quite straightforward, intense, you can still notice the youth, but it is good to drink and offers what you expect here
    • Finish
      ashy smoke, drier mouthfeel, vanilla, slightly metallic

    Tasted Kilchoman Euro Tour 4 Oktober 2018 Heers

    Vatting of 5 casks, not the same as the 46% Machir Bay.

    Comment: high abv% but very full mouth coating feeling. But with some rougher edges of the younger whisky.
    • Nose
      Peanut, peat, salty
    • Taste
      Peatsmoke, vanilla, light spices, quite mouth coating for whisky at this age. Here and there some rougher edges from the younger spirit
    • Finish
      Mouth coating, peatsmoke, vanilla. After 10 minutes again some mouth coating peatsmoke which I do like!
