    Peter Wills, one of the sons of the distillery founder, was in Cologne for a Kilchoman tasting - while ghosts and ghosts were celebrating Halloween outside, we were able to devote eight different bottlings to the distillery under the guidance of Wills.
    The three-year Spring 2011 release was the last bottling of this kind, it was replaced by now part of the core range belonging Machir Bay.
    A juxtaposition of the Spring 2011 release and the 2018 Machir Bay showed a distinct family resemblance, noting that the current Machir Bay notes that it is one of the heart of the distillery - here, over time, a successful mix of Bourbon and Sherry casks found.

  8. Ivynor scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Below Kilchoman Autumn and Winter in my opinion. A product however more than correct, for 3 years of age.
    • Nose
      Peat, medicinal plants and a little lime.
    • Taste
      Cough syrup (plants and sugar), smoke. It's fat at the first attack but it falls quickly. The finish is dry and ashen.
    • Finish
      Syrup for cough followed by a sensation of dryness of the palate.

  9. nc2malt did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Taken from bottle label, Dr. James Swan - Whisky Consultant
    • Nose
      Strong peaty aromas with a soft complex blend of mixed fruits.
    • Taste
      Hints of butterscotch and rich tropical fruits with an intense sweetness.
    • Finish
      A truly classic Islay malt, peaty, fresh and clean

  10. Malt Hans scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Smoky and spicy aroma, toffee, vanilla, cloves, cinnamon, orange zest, Vanilla sweet and smoky taste, pepper, ginger, mint, ripe orange, raisins and malt. Long, smoky and spicy end.
