- 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
Not a tipical Islay, low on peat. Fruity and a bit medicinal
Quit a surprice, young whisy but already a bit complex. Strong fruit and a bit of gras.. then the peat en spice
Quit strong, peat and quit long..
- Single Dram Note.
Transferring previous Note (2011.12.15) content into a Tasting Note.
chalk, cinamon, paper/cardboard, fresh capsicum, iodine, rubber, honey (82)
chalky sweetness, pear ester, talcum latex gloves, caramel & honey, next to iodine-y smoke (84)
nuts, earthy, salt & a sour note at the very end occasionally (81)
- From memory, it was pretty good. Below me for Laph 10, Ardbeg 10 or in the same range, the Kilchoman Autumn, but to regouter.
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.
The mouth was quite powerful, oily, smoke, lemon and plants. A cross between Ardbeg 10 and Laphroaig 10 plus "raw"
Pretty long, peat, plants and sugar
- Taken from bottle label, Dr. James Swan - Whisky Consultant
Peaty aromas and a complex blend of citrus, pear drops and vanilla.
An initial sweetness is followed by peat smoke and the mixed fruits.
Long, clean and sweet leaving hints of peat smoke.
- 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.
