    **Kudos**
    This 3 years old Kilchoman was bottled especially for Belgium. Note that it’s still the previous bottle shape. But the content is again a textbook version of bourbon cask matured Kilchoman. The ABV leaves little to the imagination. Perhaps having some water ready is not a bad idea. Or is it?

    I cannot hide it’s young age, but nevertheless this nose is very pleasant. This not only means that they have excellent spirit, but also proves that Anthony Wills is very particular about the wood he uses. Peat, lime, earth, pears, plasticine, vanilla, mint. The order varies every time I put my nose n the glass. And while it is very high in alcohol, it does not numb my nose. I can smell this for minutes on end.

    It all returns on the palate, but fair is fair: everything is more flat than the nose promised. It does turn feisty on white pepper, liquorice and ginger. The smoke suddenly becomes very big. You can also taste the oak, but it does not become disturbing. Yes, you can taste this is young and unruly, but it is also very good. Forget about water, there is no need.

    The finish is very long, clean and smoky.

    Kudos to Kilchoman for successfully creating a whisky at only three years of age.
