    Product Description "Kilchoman Vintage 2013 100% Islay Bourbon Single Cask 57.6% vol. 0.7l # 7/9"

    A total of nine individual cask bottlings form the "An T-earrach 2020" (spring 2020) series by Kilchoman.
    Kilchoman's own barley was used for this bottling, malted at Kilchoman - the single malt whisky matured for over six years in a first filled ex-Bourbon barrel.

    Bottled: May 1st, 2020
    Phenol content: 20ppm

    Playing with water is worthwhile with the drop :-)

  3. Archer scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Presses properly on the tube. Kilchoman from the Bourbon Cask is one of my favorite cask defaults - you can still tell a little about his youthfulness, but he does a lot of things right.

      Light fruits, vanilla, honey, peat smoke and a warm tray. A bit pointed here and there, but this will change over time. Gooseberry and kiwi (have I ever found this in a Kilchoman?), White chocolate, almond butter.

      Powerful start. Makes a fresh and fruity impression, the smoke is surprisingly just a decorative accessory. The focus is clearly on warm applesauce and lemon cake, pepper, clove powder and allspice can also be made out.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium length, barely, because it doesn't linger on the tongue for too long. At the back, it delivers nice chocolate notes, plus cocoa and caramel candy.
