    Opposite
    Viking Line from Finland is a ferry service in Scandinavia. They often offer exclusive single casks on their ships. This is one of those: a Kilchoman 5 Year Old 2007 single sherry cask.

    The peat smoke is unmistakable, yet the nose is dominated by the sherry cask. I get very sweet notes of candied sugar and farmer’s butter. Mokatine and origin chocolate shavings over Columbian coffee. Green hers (parsley, thyme) and some sea salt. A less pleasant note of play-doh threatens to ruin the day, but that does not happen.

    The arrival is very sturdy, with the emphasis on the spices (nutmeg, ginger, chili pepper and cinnamon) and a bit, salty smokiness. The dark and sweet notes struggle to shine through this. Nevertheless, this is very pleasant. Some mint and chewing tobacco kick in. Salted caramel and charcoal.

    The finish, however, lifts this malt to higher regions. Wonderfully long, warm, bittersweet and a bit umami. Grand.

    The nose is the very opposite of the taste. Sweet versus salt. Very nice, though. But the finish is absolutely stunning.

    This i a good one, Kilchoman and sherry finish, very nice combination. Thanks to Mats Linderborg for the sample.

    (Rating interval 83-87)
    • Nose
      Heavy peat smoke, smoked butter, mixed spice, sea salt, brown sugar and some dark roasted coffee far back. 
    • Taste
      It's young on the palate, no doubt, bright and warm but with spicy flavors to back up the strong alcohol. Cinnamon and black pepper, burnt wood are all found behind the heavy peat smoke. More sweetness after the addition of water but also sweet mint, spear mint and salt licorice (salmiak)
    • Finish
      the finish is long and heavy with peat smoke and barley spirit. After water it becomes more sweet and sour, more spicy and with licorice and fresh leather.
