    Very correct and quite nice-tasting whisky. The first time I met to taste juniper fruit, something like Gin or cough syrup in it.
    Alcohol very well hidden, it doesn't dominate the whole thing, because I don't like it. Lots of smoky and peat accents, but there is also a sweetness in the form of stewed plums, which collects the whole thing and introduces delicacy.

    Water drop...

    The aroma has more notes of pine needles, peat and the earthiness have disappeared, here it looks like a plus.
    The taste is more cough syrup, more sweets, vanilla and grapefruit are added, the saltiness remains, but not so intense. Escaped pepper and spice.
    A more captivating finish, also long, more delicate with a pleasant bitterness and rubbed lemon peel. After a while, wet forest litter with a hint of mint appears.
    Uuuuu .. Great !!! Much, much better. What does this descent a few% down.
    For a drop of water, I would add 1 point to each of the ingredients.

      quite long, sweet, mineral, again sea salt, ending with a hint of oak bitterness and wet forest floor.

    I'm no fun of Kilchoman and this bottle doesn't really change it. There is something in both nose and taste which doesn't work for me. Byre?

    Dark, deep amber color. Definitely oily in the glass.

      Full, intense, rich. Sweet. Lots of vanilla and caramel. A little peat in the background. Maybe some menthol. Needles in the background. After a while, even floral and citrus appear.
