Whisky Reviews for Kilchoman 2006
20 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.87 points
- With its 46%, it does not run too low - and for a mere five-year aging, it already presents a very nice selection of flavors.
Spicy smoke with mixed apricot compote. Lime slices. Tar paper and a shot of machine oil. Spices work their way forward, including pepper, grated cloves and bay leaves.
Cool smoke and at once sweetness of yellow fruits, provided with a splash of lemon. Nutmeg and cinnamon, whole milk chocolate. The fruit sweetness is fascinating, sometimes even plays candy and reminiscent of glazed apples from the fair. Brown sugar, honey. Malt captures the sweetness a bit again.
Medium long finish with still very clear peat smoke note. Limes, fine spice mixture, brown sugar candy.
- Hmm, really? is it astringent? Find it rather dry than sweet, but with me there is nothing. I think that's not overly hot now. He is well balanced. 84-85 points, I would say. Hm, now he seems a bit flatter. So 84, not 85. Notes from an online chat tasting.
sweeter nose than my Kilchomans so far, miss something the salt. Somewhat stronger smoke, that's right. Caramel somehow. The citrus note is hard to find, but now comes the salt, not so sweet. Ah, heat helps, there's a lot more ...
Now I also have some iodine and other maritime notes. Nice!
But there is something sour and salty on the palate, uiuiui ...
Well, I do not think that's overly hot, but some black pepper is definitely there. Citrus is very decent, so orange peel fits, I think. 2. Sip: Oh yes, much fruity, right at the beginning a lot of caramel, little salt and hardly any smoke.
The first finish had something sour and musty. pretty awesome, but I can not describe, unfortunately did not come again. ;-(
- Comment: Very nice, soft nose, mild smoke. The taste does not convince. An unfamiliar aftertaste.
- Great potential but needs longer maturation. Water will kill the dram.
- no flavor bomb
a lot of smoke
strong, sweet smoke
I really like the Kilchoman smoke; both in the nose and in the taste
very smoky, but very pleasant and soft
a lot of sea
sweet, yellow fruits
and again and again smoke
no metallic youth
strong and smoky
the smoke slowly spreads throughout the mouth
Sweetness and herbs
Carnation and laurel
a touch of oak and salty lemon
- a very harmonious whisky and pleasant to drink
sweet barley, soft peat smoke, lemon, fresh and maritime, phenol, green herbs, yellow cherries, salt water and some ash, eucalyptus
sweet smoky, phenol, chocolate, yummy, sweet popcorn on the tongue,
a lot of chocolate, medium-bitter on the palate
Baked apple juice, barrel, salty> <sweet, maritime
- A wild cinnamon bomb!
beautifully integrated Kilchomanrauch, slightly cinnamon, dirty, apricot, quince, a bit of pepper, maritime
Sweet smoke, definitely cinnamon, a bit like the 2014 Cairdeas by Laphroaig, malty, a bit oak
The smoke lingers for a long time, as does the cinnamon, behind salty and peppery
- Wild Islay. Lovely nose, then full board. Very dry.
Fat peat, sweet, a little bit pungent, the white pepper is actually there, a few cloves After some time much more cloves and orange peel, Christmas.
medicinal, phenolic, ash, very dry, some salt, pepper, barely sweet. Quite a contrast to the nose.
some cowshed, peat, smoke, quite dry, pepper. Towards the end, a light sweetness is added. Otherwise quite astringent.
