  1. Archer scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    At just 11 years old, he is already pretty mature. What a great fruity-smoky Kilchoman. The beauty: this is not a flash. With this age (10-12 years) you can find very many, very good bottlings of Kilchoman lately.
    • Nose
      90 90
      A cool and mild smoky note, supported by raisins, dried figs and dates. The smoke is the first thing in the nose - even from some distance to the edge of the glass - but it is still not dominant. The sherry aromas are full; In addition to the dried fruits can be found leather, coffee beans and chocolate with high cocoa content. A few dried wild herbs pull through. The smoke is warmer, now more reminiscent of a roaring campfire. Spicy bacon, warm machine oil.
    • Taste

      Sweet and fruity, he lays on his tongue. Raspberry drops, currant, strawberry - compared to the nose, the fruits on the tongue are fresh, not dried. Mild smoke. Creamy and pleasantly warm, no trace sharp. Crème brûlée, fine-sour chocolate, pepper, mild chili, paprika. Unhealthily pleasant mouthfeel.

      Medium to long, lightly dry, creamy until the very end. Chocolate cake with cream, sugar beet syrup, malt candy, mild herbs and spices. The pleasant sharpness of the tongue disappears slowly. Still sweet fruits.
