  1. wisekycourse scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    * peaty and mineral, a little salty,
    salted caramel, some dry wood
    algae well wetted by the ebb of the tide
    citrus, lemon and a touch of vanilla
    strong spices, slightly meaty peat, tar at that time, a little bitterness that arises, it looks young on the palate, there is pear brandy, and a little cocoa
    peppery, woody, peaty and smoky, citrus fruit, rather short finish.

    Very easy to drink. Dangerously tasty. At first wonderfully soft and mild in the mouth, then getting stronger, then comes the oak, great complex. In the finish with lemon, pear, dark chocolate, espresso and smoke. Brilliant. Drinks as light as apple spritzer.

    The oldest product of the distillery (9yo), the fruit of 45 barrels (42 ex Bourbon and 3 ex Oloroso sherry for a total of 15,000 bottles) with a peat content of 50 ppm.
    Very good, original and full of contrasts: sweet and salty, smoke and cereals.
    • Nose
      On the nose initially a lot of good peat, robust and not very smoky, which then fades and a surprising icing sugar appears and after a while some good bread
    • Taste
      On the palate excellent ash peat, a little lemon, sea salt. With water it softens and contrasts become less evident. Better without water.
    • Finish
      Long finish, ashtray, a slight balsamic note (mint)

    • Nose

      Light, pleasant, typical Islay notes - but not intense - peaty, salty, greasy
    • Taste
      82 82
      Salt, slightly oily, smoke, fine pepper notes, heather
    • Finish
      80 80
      pleasantly warm, dry, remains medium-long on the palate

      Rather mild and fresh, light sweetness, very balanced and round, light citrus fruits, fresh hay, subtle smoke. Not that bad.

      Wow, more intensity than expected. Heavy smoke stays longer than the nose expected. Slight sweetness and nice round, but not too mild.

  8. Menko scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    What a geat little distillery this is. The 100% Islay, Coull point and this 2010 are of such high quality, it makes me wonder why I even bother to buy anything else.
    This 2010 has a promising nose. It's warming, well balanced, powerfull and oily and at the same time easy to drink, peated (obviously), a bit sweet (not overdone) and very, very enjoyable.

  9. larswehmeier scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Elegantly matured Kilchoman with rather reserved smoke aromas, but the ex-bourbon ripening aromatic in the foreground.
    • Nose
      Lemony, fruity, fresh. Honey and vanilla. Clear ripening of bourbon. Fresh aromatic oak. Floral hints of heather and lilac.
    • Taste
      Strong on the tongue. Slightly peppery tingling of the oak. Elegant, dry smoke. A lot of caramel.
    • Finish
      Clean, classic smoky. Is slowly becoming drier.
