    Colour: Pale gold.
    Nose: Very dry, tarry, ashy and very smoky.
    Taste: Very salty, young, on sea water, iodine, tar and seaweeds.
    Rather sweet. The finish is short to medium, ashy, smoky and tarry.
    Impression: A very smoky version of Kilchoma for the first version signed by the
    new distillery manager, John Maclellan.

    Young, but good. Not ballanced but already complex. fruit en peat is tasteful in this whisky
    • Nose
      Not a tipical Islay, low on peat. Fruity and a bit medicinal
    • Taste
      Quit a surprice, young whisy but already a bit complex. Strong fruit and a bit of gras.. then the peat en spice
    • Finish
      Quit strong, peat and quit long..

  8. Ivynor scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    From memory, it was pretty good. Below me for Laph 10, Ardbeg 10 or in the same range, the Kilchoman Autumn, but to regouter.
    • Nose
      I did not find my notes of 2012, when in the Ferry to Islay, I tasted for the first time a kilchoman. But I have some memories.
      The nose was very islay, peat and lemon, a little ash.
    • Taste
      The mouth was quite powerful, oily, smoke, lemon and plants. A cross between Ardbeg 10 and Laphroaig 10 plus "raw"
    • Finish
      Pretty long, peat, plants and sugar

  9. nc2malt did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Taken from bottle label, Dr. James Swan - Whisky Consultant
    • Nose
      Peaty aromas and a complex blend of citrus, pear drops and vanilla.
    • Taste
      An initial sweetness is followed by peat smoke and the mixed fruits.
    • Finish
      Long, clean and sweet leaving hints of peat smoke.

  10. Malt Hans scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Smoky and fruity aroma, apple, linseed oil,

    white chocolate, cloves and malt. Vanilla sweet and smoky taste, pepper,

    eucalyptus, orange marmalade and malt. Long, smoky and malty end.
