  1. Archer scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Hm, Madeira. Provides great fruit notes here and generally seems to harmonize quite well with smokers when I think of the Laphroaig Cairdeas from the corresponding barrel. Delicious thing!

      Dried dates, raisins, blackberries, raspberries. A pleasant note of peat smoke hovers over it. Not too intense, not too shy. Delicate herb mix with thyme, rosemary, savory and marjoram. The herbs take away the sweetness of the fruit and make the nose look balanced overall.

      Soft, velvety and creamy start. I didn't expect that, especially if the nominally strong 55%. However, these are only noticeable with a warm mouthfeel, otherwise this is a delight for the palate and tongue. Mild herbs that increase in intensity over time and become tart. In this regard, a reflection of the nose, thyme and rosemary leading. Here too raisins and dried dates, milk coffee, espresso beans. Pepper out from the back, cozy warm peat smoke all the time.

      Medium-length finish, now dry. The creaminess has gone somewhere on the tongue and now leaves smoke, berry fruits, mild herbs, dry wooden chips and pickled raisins.

    Madeira and Kilchoman is a great combination, the fruity sweetness goes very well with the spicy smoke, fascinating how good these still quite young whiskys are to drink even without water without being at all spicy.
    • Nose
      A sweet start, red berries, slightly fizzy, strawberries and raspberries, slightly nutty, a bit of cotton candy, over everything is slightly spicy smoke, some creamy chocolate, a hint of caramel, the most intense are by far the red berries, jelly, over time there is also a little bacon, the smoke becomes clearer, there is also something sour in the nose, and actually also some oak, oily, beautiful, after the first sip I also have a little mint
    • Taste
      oily, sweet, red berries, creamy, briefly I have to think of sulfur, but only briefly and hinted at, also here sour, pleasant smoke level, cinnamon, intense and fruity, quite sweet, chocolate on the palate, nice and intense and good mouthfeel, with water a little drier, less sweet, more on the woody and chocolaty side, without water it pleases with a little better
    • Finish
      Nuts, hazelnuts, a little drier, espresso, the berries are now definitely heading towards raspberries, the smoke is again accompanied by a slight spice
