  1. YosemiteSam scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Especially for Christmas! You actually expect a sherry bomb for those cold and dark days. Kilchoman opts for a combination of bourbon and sherry. Bring on the holidays!

    Not too complicated, yet delicious dram! Just opened the bottle and I’m already looking forward to going through it over time hahaha. Very enjoyable for the price, I will get a replacement bottle for sure:)
    • Nose
      Surprisingly soft, sweet, vanilla, mild peat smoke, barbecued meat, maritime notes, malted barley, green apples, honey
    • Taste
      Nice combination of sweetness and grilled meat, creamy richness, but you can already feel the cask strength on the back.. Again barley sugar, honey, maritime notes, grilled meat, apples, hint of a milk chocolate
    • Finish
      longer, bit drier than palate/nose, smoky, peppery with hints of salt

    From a free sample, unfortunately I don't know which batch.
    But I am pleasantly surprised.
    Nice nose, pleasant sweetness.

    I really enjoy this Kilchoman. For 60 € you get a very fine Islay Ex-Bourbon Smoker.

    On the nose you can find grilled bananas, white grapes, a good portion of herbs from Provence, banana ice cream, pancake batter and a strong marine and ashy smoke. Very salty, iodine, lime mussels, seaweed moss, barbecue, grilled vegetables, extinguished campfire and some leather. In the taste less herbs of Provence and more lovage and black pepper. In addition, the association of a grilled melon and dark earth. The smoke becomes tarry. The finish could perhaps be a bit longer, but that is complaining on a very high level.

    Great PLV. Classic Kilchoman. The barrel strength fits perfectly.
    • Nose
      Intense smoke, pleasantly phenolic and ashy. Nice light sweetness to it. Powdered sugar. Vanilla. A touch of white pepper tingles your nose.
    • Taste
      Pleasantly creamy consistency. Powerful kick on the tongue. Good portion of pepper. Fresh apple. Nice ashy smoke on the palate.
    • Finish
      Maritime. Long. There is smoke in the throat. The barrel strength warms.
