  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Bacon and salt, fresh fruit and cherry brandy. Cereals. Allies gluttony and maritime side. Very young and fresh. Very fine, too. Salt supported in the final but without sacrificing balance.
    Enthusiasm 4/5

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:Kilchoman ‘Loch Gorm 2013’ (46%, OB, 2013)  I believe it was a 2007. Colour: gold. Nose: its softer, leafier, more polished, and in a way, more ‘Caol Ila’. Fresh walnuts and apple peelings. Perhaps a little more engine oil as well? Mouth: excellent as well, but perhaps a little more mono-dimensional than the 2015. A little more towards sappy and soapy tones, putty, plasticine… But very excellent it remains. Finish: long, lemony, salty, always with a little putty. Or putty-like flavours. Comments: you got it, I liked the 2015 edition rather better. But the 2013 was lovely too. Great work in the Rhinns of Islay! John MacLellan is a magician. More proof that you can be ultra-competent while being the sweetest and the humblest person on earth. Gives you faith in Scotch again! SGP:457 - 87 points.

  8. Gronqvist scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Tasted in April 2015.
    • Nose
      Fresh and Fruity with smell of rubber followed by discrete peat, mint, pepper, cloves and antiseptic notes.
    • Taste
      Sweet peat,  wood smoke, nutmeg, cinnamon, tobacco leaves, sherry, cloves, chocolate and raisins.
    • Finish
       Long with a good balanced with lingering sweetness and smoke.

  9. Cicero did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A nice malt with a lot of potential. A few years of maturation will certainly suit him well.
    • Nose
      Smoke and juicy fruit, berries, moreover a freshness and some youthfulness
    • Taste
      hui, clearly smoke in the entrance, for me the smoke goes in the direction of Laphroaig, then then echoes of red fruit, a little sweetness and finally the youth is then still noticeable

      Well balanced with lingering sweetness and long finish
