Whisky Reviews for Kilchoman 2012

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.64 points

  1. Archer scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Here the Madeira barrel has not yet been able to fully exploit its influence. Quite tart and demanding, not a simple whisky.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Tart smoke, interspersed with orange, tangerine, honeydew melon, banana.
      Herbal brew, cloves, bay leaves, based on dark chocolate and loamy soil.
    • Taste
      86 86
      On the tongue with a pleasant kick, not too strong. Dry, fruity, distinct peat smoke. Mandarin water, lime, honeydew melon. Vanilla and tart honey. Freshly ground herb mixture, pepper, paprika spice. The fruits hardly compete with the bitter notes.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium length and very dry. Ashy smoke, still a little sweet from the fruit. Dry wood and tart herbs predominate, pepper en masse.
