Expert Senior Thermidor Note
15 Dec 2015 11:41 am
Thermidor gave this whisky 80 points
[from a bottle that had been open for a long time] Barbecue chips spice mix. Not as rubbery anymore as I'd been led to believe but it doesn't seem particularly complex nor is there any development noticeable probably due to having been open a long time already. The body is quite light. Heavy in peat but rather watery. This is pretty nice but I think I liked the bourbon sc I had before this more since the sherry here could have used some more time to integrate into the make better. There's just one thing happening here all the time so it gets a bit tiring.

Amontillad
Nose

Lagerfeuer, würzig, fruchtig, aber auch etwas von einem vom Meerwasser feucht gewordenen Jutesack.

Taste

Und nun beginnt sich ein metallischer Nebengeschmack mit einer etwas sirup-/honigartigen Masse zu balgen, untermauert von etwas Zitrusfrucht.

Finish

Das Lagerfeuerartige und gleichzeitig das Metallische drängen sich für einen Moment in den Vordergrund, dann kämpft sich wieder die Melasse durch, begleitet von leichter Vanille und Zitrusfrüchten, dann kommt wieder das Metallische. Mit etwas Goodwill kann der Abgang als mittellang bezeichnet werden.

Comments

Tja, im Verhältnis zu den gefinished Versionen, bei denen das Metallische (wohl von den noch jungen Pot-Stills stammend) neben den herausziselierten anderen Geschmacksbestandteilen den besonderen Charme der Kilchoman-Tropfen ausmachte, gefällt mir hier die Kombination des animalisch-metallischen Geschmacks in Kombination mit der etwas diffusen Gallerte weniger gut. Beim Machir Bay 2013 habe ich das Zuwenig an Sherry-Fässern kritisiert, hier ist der Sherry etwas zu dominant. Das ist weniger ein geräucherter Whisky als ein geräucherter Sherry!

Color
Deep gold
Nose

Color: Rich golden.

Soft peaty aromas and a blend of soft fruits and spice.
Taste

An initial sweetness is followed by soft peaty aromas, mixed fruits and spice.

Finish

Long and clean with a character and richness that belies its tender age.

Color
Burnished
Nose

This heavy aromatic peat is similar to young Ardbeg whiskeys. Sherry-Sweetness and some fruits, but the peat is dominant

Taste

Sweetness, very fruity, pears, apricots, ripe oranges, sweet spices like cinnamon, maybe some tobacco notes

Finish

Long, peat level decreases, sweetness remains

Comments

Single dram note. 2012_11 BoB tasting.

Remember - whisky scores and impressions are highly subjective and situational by nature - so don't go and buy whisky according to someone else's taste...

m884 gave this whisky 80 points

Nose: Peat, rather sweet sherry, peat sweetness, tad smoke, a bit solvent`ish, "young", something rubber and sulphur

Mouth: sherry, peat, fir tree

Finish: Again some "young" flavor / solvent, peat, nutty, medium long, towards the end sherry

Comments: This one doesn`t really work for me on a high level. It just seems off on several levels. Decent but I expected more here.

As expected of Kilchoman, this is a great dram, nice peaty, straightforward, clear and lots of taste. A real Islay style.

I tried this bottling and thought it was very poor. Definitely not to my taste.

It's better to have drunk it all than never to have drunk at all.
