    I heard that not everyone likes this Kilchoman release and that some find the redwine influence a bit too much.

    I liked it a lot and the influence of the shaved cask is good but for me not too much in the direction of redwine.

    Killed.By.Oak. Thou shalt not shave, toast and rechar unless you make bourbon. I hope this is not the way Kilchoman is going in the future.

    Nose, red wine, quite spicy, light red fruits, like pomegranate but without the acid side. Currant, dry bilberry, a hint of earth. In the mouth, it's very good, the spices rise very quickly, pepper and cardamom, until an explosive final, tar and soot.

    At the very beginning I thought "it's a pity red wine again, something new would not be bad", but the burned out barrels make the whole thing really very interesting, the strong oak influence is clear, but makes for me the whole thing more complex and exciting and the fruity sweetness The red wine is a nice contrast.
    • Nose
      A nice sweet raspberry as an overtone, in addition quite decent oak influence, which brings some dryness and spice, the smoke is not too present in the nose, a bit acid, vinous, greasy, yes really then quite dry overall, slightly malty, yes good wood, slightly scorched
      After the first sip of creamy, some vanilla comes to chocolate (bittersweet)
    • Taste
      oily, full-bodied, starts sweet, the smoke here is more intense, fruity, red wine, raspberry, cinnamon, then the oak beats, it is drier, the mouth is a bit misty, acid, intense, overall a nice mouthfeel, good to drink, the 50% hit it again to the point
    • Finish
      red fruity sweet on the palate, increasingly dry oak in the mouth, ashen smoke, pleasant and warming finish
