  1. Archer scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Although I prefer Kilchoman from the Bourbon barrel, there is nothing to criticize with this sherry butt. Nice, not intrusive fruit sweetness, coupled with mild smoke and some spices. Nice combination.
    • Nose

      At first hesitant, he needs a little oxygen. Then come with grapes, raisins, cherry crumbles, leather and tobacco Sherrynoten. Very mild cool smoke. Machine oil, pepper. The aroma becomes more intense, the longer you smell. Now come spices: juniper berries, bay leaves, marjoram, tarragon.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Strong, creamy and oily with fresh wood, clear smoke, grapes, raisins, forest berry jam. Pine needles, a fresh minty note, like peppermint chewing gum. The sweetness combines well with the smoke, which looks cool and ashen. Lemon zest. Milk chocolate, toffee.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long finish, slightly dry, spicy, smoky, peppery, grape sweet. Stay on the tongue for a long time.

  2. Dre73 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Strong and intense whisky, although the alcohol has been integrated very well. In nose and body there's some sherry cask influence to be found, in the finish the peatsmoke has taken over.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Light peated, chocolate, ash, smoke, tobacco. Then suddenly a lot of leather and furniture wax, and later on more mouldy.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Strong, intense, tobacco, and then some red fruits as well. Alcohol is integrated very nicely.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Still strong, intense, ash, bonfire smoke, peat, tobacco. Pretty long, hardly any fruit or sweet influence left, but still enjoyable.

  4. Ivynor scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      84 84
      Nose rather farmy, a little oily, on straw, dry grass. Sherry is very weak.
    • Taste
      86 86
      The mouth is above, more greedy, although a bit dry, on lemon, orange peel, herbs. Peat and iodized set. End of mouth little creamy.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Final quite spicy and woody, peaty and especially well farmed. Sherry always very indented.
