  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.

    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.

  5. 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.

    Great Islay malt, dangerously tasty.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Full and intense. Tar, slightly phenolic chimney smoke, greasy. Sweetness of custard with caramel (or creme bruleé), English orange jam. Some freshly sawn wood in the background.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Light, round and sweetly fruity. Much less beefy than the nose would suggest.
      Citrus, vanilla, oak and smoke in balance, slightly peppery.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium length, almost not dry. Citrus and smoke dominate, later the oak becomes clear.

  10. Archer scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    In the nose very promising, it is on the tongue only harsh, then almost bitter. Unfortunately a bit exhausting.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Camp fire smoke with submerged peat soil, smoked ham, heated metal. Smoked lemon slices, nutmeg, clove powder. Vanilla pudding. The nose alternates between greasy smoke, spice and fruit.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Sweet-sour onset with hearty smoke, tart herbs, slices of lemon and bitter orange marmalade with pieces. Crème brûlée with burnt caramel layer. Malt, dry wood. The bitter herbs play in the bitter, that can not catch the lemon alone.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Relatively short finish, dry, smoky, bitter to bitter. If a little fruit should be left, it can not be seen behind the smoke.
