Whisky Reviews for Kilchoman 2012

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.67 points

  1. Archer scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Once again a STR Kilchoman who knows how to convince. Harmonizes beautifully with the distillery style.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Warm smoke that instantly mixes with vanilla, honey and the impression of a wild herb meadow. Milk chocolate, marzipan, leather and fresh tobacco leaves. A subtle but very well balanced nose.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Spicy and smoky start with strawberry puree, red apple, vanilla and honey. Roasted aromas, plums, blackberries, raisins. Thick and dense.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium length and dry, fruity sweetness of blackberries, light herbal notes, pepper and nougat chocolate.
