  1. Archer scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Since Kilchoman shows quite a lot of qualities when he is young, you might think that as an almost 14-year-old you have a senior in your glass with him. Far from it: in the nose it is only deceptive, on the tongue and in the finish it behaves like a little bitch - which is very welcome.

      Far away is a faintly glimmering peat fire ... Damp wood, a bit of musty and musty cellar. The aromas unfold discreetly, he is not someone who jumps in the face with his bare ash. Dried herbs, a drawer full of spices. Completely removes honey and a little vanilla. Over time he loses some of his reticence - and the peat fire also seems to have received new food.

      Although over 55% not a child of sadness, it lies down comparatively soft and creamy on the tongue. Roasted lemon peel, a peat fire that has almost cooled down, a warm tin roof. Espresso beans, nutmeg, pepper. At almost 14 and with this nose I would have judged him to be more cautious on the tongue, but he creates a good mood, leaves a neat smoking trail of smoke, is not stingy with conciseness.

      On the tongue, it didn't really matter anymore, the dry finish now shows the slightly musty note from the nose again. Espresso beans and dark chocolate, coffee grounds, nutmeg, savory. Not to forget the peat smoke note, because it turns up again at the end.

      clean, very clean smoke on Salty lemons and stones.. more salt, salt without end.. the sea on a Scottish shore..
    • Taste
      91 91
      sweet, honey-sweet and spicy.. spicy honey, a vibrant, lively combination.. it picks up heat from here on and becomes quite violent, ashy and dry.. very powerful attack on the tongue.. menthol, camphor and other such beasts.. but creamy and velvety at the same time, how can this be?
    • Finish
      88 88
      dry, obviously.. ashy, of course, like burnt-up earth after the fire.. salty chocolate.
