  1. Archer scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Kilchoman and STR, what a combination. Not the first STR Cask tasted, which is a real stunner in terms of taste. And if I think about it for a moment, I can't think of a Kilchoman STR-Cask that couldn't be described as extremely successful ...

      Fresh strawberries, lightly smoked. The almost 9 years of maturation have left their mark: the smoky note is only very discreet as a companion and does not push itself to the fore at all. Toffee, white coffee, Christmas chocolate. A hint of cinnamon, a little coriander - and a few juicy cherries on the back.

      Starts with a bowl of strawberries in vanilla milk ... Lush peat smoke that is still well hidden in the nose. Nice, sweet fruity notes that come not only from the strawberries, but also from raspberries and cherries. Chocolate flakes, fresh cookie dough.

      Medium to long, very tasty, sweet peat smoke - and yet still a good seasoning that provides a good counterbalance to the sweetness of the fruit.

    A harmony of dark red fruits and spices, bedded over the finest peat smoke soil.

    The initial thought of strawberry jam is constantly evident throughout the mid and the finishing. Like spreading strawberry jam on a scone.
