  1. GJR scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    As the editions age, they begin to lose the luster and power that made Kilchoman so interesting (to me). This is mainly a sweet peat / smoke and certainly feels a bit made and clean on the nose and taste. Finish is still clear Kilchoman. Unfortunately...

    • Nose
      A nice layer of peat. Cereals, and a hint of barley sugar. There is some vanilla and honey. Followed by lemons. It’s a little bit nutty too. Hay.
    • Taste
      More peat than in the nose. But its’s creamy too. Chocolate and caramel. Somewhat salty. Honey again and cereals in the background. Then lemons and green apples, which gives it a little bit of freshness. Quite nice. Some menthol in the very background. And spices.
    • Finish
      Peat again, and vanilla. Lemons.

    Peter Wills, one of the sons of the distillery founder, was in Cologne for a Kilchoman tasting - while ghosts and ghosts were celebrating Halloween outside, we were able to devote eight different bottlings to the distillery under the guidance of Wills.
    It started with a comparison of the 2nd and 9th releases of the 100% Islay.
    It's amazing how close the two are, which quality the 3-year-old bottling already has. Of course, the 9th release has more depth and a much richer and longer-lasting finish, but you can find much that features the older bottling in the six year younger edition.

    On the nose of cereals and peat, add to that light vanilla. Wheat, sun, fruit from the orchard. Nice mouth with white fruits. Final a little aggressive.

    Nice that Kilchoman after last year's trip to the sherry keg warehouse this year has again resorted to 100% Bourbon barrels. Fortunately, Kilchoman gets better and better with age.
    • Nose
      87 87
      A comparatively mild smoke, mixed with the smell of fresh wood chips and citrus. A thick honey-covered sandwich, a hint of bay leaves. After smoking habituation, which takes place here quickly, the citrus note becomes more intense and a fine solvent note shows up. Vanilla kipper with cinnamon.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Powerful and creamy onset, which brings a handful of milk chocolate and caramel sweets on the tongue. Warm vanilla sauce, lemon drops, strawberry jam. Will become dry and astringent after the creamy onset. Fine-herb and spices, some black tea (un-flavored).
      Now I almost forgot the smoke ... Yes, it's there, but subtle.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium-long and dry, smokier than in the nose and on the tongue. Honey, vanilla, citrus, some bacon, wood with a scorch.
