    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.
    It started with a comparison of the 2nd and 9th releases of the 100% Islay.
    It's amazing how close the two are, which quality the 3-year-old bottling already has. Of course, the 9th release has more depth and a much richer and longer-lasting finish, but you can find much that features the older bottling in the six year younger edition.

      Basically no metallic notes, hardly any pear, but a pleasant lemon note, peat smoke, vanilla.

      Blind he would taste on the tongue after more than three years ...

      Here you notice the youth - the finish is short and crisp.

  7. Andytka3 scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Soft smoke with overwhelm of coconut fragrance. After the initial hit,
    get the pungent of soft pepper , and lightly mossy.

    Palate:- Ashy, grassy, green and hint of coal.

    Finish:- Medium finish, rusty mineral and quite chewy.But feel a bit flat some where, something is missing...lack some kick.
    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

    Hay, ham, manure and  a young porridgy sweet character.
    I like the nose; the simple young farmy islay style.
