    A nice sweet and smoky Islay, bright and a bit brash, but great flavors and well done.

  5. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Amazingly mature for 3 years.
    • Nose
      fierce peat smoke, but very sweet, there is a certain vinous touch, a little cowshed
    • Taste
      Self-willed, peat, anise, surprisingly bitter, cloves and some menthol. Amazing soft start.
    • Finish
      Peat, still very dry, astringent, herbaceous somehow, more peat and a bit ashy.

    Colour: Gold.
    Nose: Peaty, slightly maritime, farmy, on dry peat smoke,
    rich in seaweeds, with some diesel oil and on wood ashes. Surprisingly mature in
    the nose.
    Taste: Light, young, fresh, salty, smoky, slightly floral, on
    diluted tar, oak and caramel. The finish is short to medium, oaky, on vanilla,
    coconut, wood ashes and slightly maritime.
    General Impression: A very nice nose suggesting more maturity
    than 3 years. The "nose" has matured faster than the body, with the oaky
    flavours more present than on the inaugural batch. This second official batch
    was bottled durig the first days of December 2009 (i.e., Winter and not
    Autumn).

  10. Ivynor scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A nice surprise. probably the best kilchoman of the four seasons that I could taste.
    • Nose
      Peat, lemon and a lot of oak.
    • Taste
      Floral and peaty, a little oily, sweet, ash and cough syrup.
    • Finish
      Always cough syrup (plants + sugar) and smoke.
