    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.

  3. SAND scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    NOSE: Oily smoke, very old salty hessian ropes. Perhaps a bit one dimensional but oh, so lovely. (89p).
    TASTE: Medium youngish taste profile, lovely peat smoke and ash, a bit oily and ashy. Lots of liqorice. (86p).
    FINISH: Ash, white pepper, liqorice. Long. (87p).
    OVERALL: Lovely nose and finish. Total score 87 (88) points.

    1520) Kilchoman, Vintage 2010, 9YO, Limited Edition
    • Nose
      N- Mineral, brine-y, vanilla custard comes with honey. Gentle scents of spiciness rounded up rather well without being obsessive. (86/20)
    • Taste
      P- Salted sweet, white fruits, boiled spices, ashy with crushed dried leaf, rather velvet spiciness developed over times. (85/19)
    • Finish
      F- Medium long, refine peaty finishing lingers with good width and balanced of spicy/sweet. (86/20)

      B/B- 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.

    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.

  9. ErrHaBe did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Although only 3 of 33 barrels had Oloroso intus, the sherry fruit clearly comes through and makes the distillate a very tasty, intense experience. Water in particular helps a lot to unlock the beautiful fruit flavors.
    • Nose
      Dominant ash, smoker, with a slight note of pine needles (or resin?). Little alcohol in the nose. Overall, more spice than fruit. Blackberry comes later - then towards cooked pear. With water less ash, more berries, more sweetness. Enjoyable.
    • Taste
      The sweetness increases, so does the fruit and the smoke clearly decreases, the smoker and its ashes become a dimmed cigar. More wood flavor and a nice, creamy mouthfeel. Water brings more creaminess, the spice decreases somewhat and, with the warmth in the mouth, ensures that the overall picture is beautiful.
    • Finish
      Getting drier, medium length, ashes, ashes, ashes and a little pear
