  1. just 2thetop scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    A solid sherry smokey whisky from a drinkers PoV
    This is no sherry bomb and an okay balance - the smoke appears shortly after the sherry.
    Quality sherry casks used but not first fill it seems to me - all 9 years old I'm told
    The 2020 Loch Gorm was more interesting from the complexity, perhaps due to the mix of some older matured spirit 11-13 years and got a fat 90 points from me.
    Not sure if the spirit is really suited to all sherry as the bourbon casks work so well.
    Therefore this one only gets 88 points from a Kilchoman fanboy.
    Would still recommend a buy for around 75 EUR in Germany.

  2. St. Pauli scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    All raised in oloroso sherry butts in the latest bottlings as opposed to the earlier that had a share of hogshead matured whisky. It makes for a slow but even maturation, leading to a balanced whisky. It's powerful enough, but greatly soft and "sweet".
    • Nose
      Distinct smokiness, not really in your face. It's rather toffee-ish and nutty, on Christmas Pudding. Still some citrus (orange zest), still some barley and soft spice.
    • Taste
      Rather sweet, almost raisin-like, but with good punch. Christmas cake is dominant, the smoke is there but very gently. Further, mixed nuts, date, toffee, a bit of citric acidity and warming cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Rich, moderately sweet and warming on spice and nuts. BBQ'ed orange (try it), cinnamon, nuts, liqueur, gentle bbq smoke, cooked fruit.

    Solid Kilchoman. I expected more from the sherry barrels. A little too expensive compared to the Sanaig, which offers something similar, if not more.

      Salty, quartz peat smoke, somewhat reminiscent of Bowmore. Behind it yellow pith and plum with a little fruity sweetness. Dried dates. Red forest berries. Barbecue western sose.

      Salty start. In addition, pepper and peat smoke. Little fruit, with a hint of plum and dried fruit. Pretty dry.

      Ash, smoke, salt, a little spice. Will be even drier. Medium length.
