Nose: clear maritime notes, sweet peat, smoked fish, some coal and oil stove, so the complete range of peat smoke. Some herbal liqueur. In addition a lot of sweetness, which one has with Kilchoman in general in my opinion, but also some sweetness from the sherry keg.
Mouth: strong, peaty, some burnt plastic, some gum. Incredibly intense, peppery onset with a lot of smoke, sweet Sherrynoten accompany this in the background.
Finish: Much peat, smoke accompanied by a subtle sweetness. Very long, delicious finish, which is still slightly astringent in the end, when the sherry barrel has prevailed against the peat smoke.
Conclusion: a great intense whisky with a subtle Sherryfasseinschlag. He does not have to be older. The tastes good even with 5 years.
