- 1520) Kilchoman, Vintage 2010, 9YO, Limited Edition
N- Mineral, brine-y, vanilla custard comes with honey. Gentle scents of spiciness rounded up rather well without being obsessive. (86/20)
P- Salted sweet, white fruits, boiled spices, ashy with crushed dried leaf, rather velvet spiciness developed over times. (85/19)
F- Medium long, refine peaty finishing lingers with good width and balanced of spicy/sweet. (86/20)
Weighted Rate- 79pt. A rather disappointing V2009 for me, so this 2010, ok.
* 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.
- peaty goodness! have had several in the vintage series, i think this is my preferred so far. Much better then the MB.
soft nose, peaty but not aggressively so.
bit dusty, earthy, floral, woody, sweet, maritime and certainly peaty.
i always compare these to ardbeg ten for reference, and this one definitely stands a bit above (in my taste).
touch of rubber, herby, bit burnt, white winey, and of course peaty
medium long, dry & peaty. Pretty nice bourbon forward peatmonster
- Well balanced peat and smoke, also like the meaty side
Peaty, smoky, meaty, ham and bacon, iodine, little citric
Oily, little punchy, citric, subtle sweetness, peat and smoke, more meaty, more ham and bacon, some beefstock, little spicy and herbal – not bad
Medium long, warm, more punchy, peaty, smoky, more herbal and austere
- 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.
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
On the palate excellent ash peat, a little lemon, sea salt. With water it softens and contrasts become less evident. Better without water.
Long finish, ashtray, a slight balsamic note (mint)
