  1. chrisyeo scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Tasting 30ml sample

    Nose : Peat all over , some iodine , light smokiness
    Taste : some sweetness, without drops of water , the alcohol warms up quite intense for me, peat smoke everywhere
    Finish : medium long - smoke lingering , peatiness lingering

  2. ConvalRen scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Notes from Kilchoman:

    Colour: Rich golden
    Nose: Nice, very nice, combines peat and sherry, typical Kilchoman cloves and cinnamon

    Palate: Soft peaty aromas with overtones of sherry. Slightly dry on palate, a good example of Kilchoman in sherry wood.

    Finish: Clean and long, rich and leaves you wanting more. Nice.

    This Kilchoman is a beast. Raw charred earth and burnt barbeque to cinders.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Mild chocolate, ash, soot, sweet peat, and medicinal scents. Smoked fish, burning oak, salt-baked seafood, gasoline. Gets more intense as I smell it, the smoke hits the back of the nostrils hard and rough.
    • Taste

      Peat, smoke, salt - hits you like a truck. Reduced tomato to a puree. A definite punch in the throat like feeling, whereby fiery peat and charred barbeque meat is combined and shoved down your throat. This whisky plays no games, goes in too deep at the start and it will smack you back. Reminds me of gasoline at the petrol station with a bbq smoker on the side, around us, the ocean breeze.
      Very very oily and thick, a viscous liquid.

      Towards the end, a greenish note of hay, seaweed and corn. Paired with a tinge of lemon and fish oil.

      Dirty, dry, and medium in length. Seaweed, sweet corn and burnt plastic. Absolutely bonkers.

  5. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    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.

    the whisky is a burner
    really great
    alcohol is still slightly noticeable (minus 2 points)
    I really like him
    Ranking: 1.Abgang, 2.Nase, 3.Mund
    • Nose
      Immediately after pouring:
      freshly threshed grain
      some medicine (mouthwash)
      and a drop of cucumber water
      somewhat later:
      Chocolate with fruit and harbor water over stinging peat smoke
    • Taste
      Smoke on the tongue immediately: the first peat says and then medicine
      on the palate, malt sweetness is added
      He smokes nicely in the throat
      now chocolate and a lot of peat
      and again a nice medicine note on the palate
      a green note and a soft, smoky medicine note
    • Finish
      Peat, bog, smoke and sweet apple wood
      and still...
      a madness finish for a 5y
