Whisky Reviews for Kilchoman 2008

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.69 points

  1. Segens scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    If you have the possibility to try a dram of this bottle you should definitely go for it as it is a very special and very good Kilchoman! If you think of buying one bottle for almost 200€ there are better alternatives! Especially all First Fill, Refill or Finish Sherry Casks are affordable for 100€ and have the same quality! 
    • Nose
      The Oloroso finish is in the nose as you have some fruity sweetness that makes the nose quite special! Nevertheless the Bourbon Barrel is the main influence therefore you have the typical salty smoke Islay vanilla peat nose :-)
    • Taste
      Wow very nice taste that I need to formalize now: The taste is definitely topping the nose.. You have honey, sherry, cherry, herbs some honey, a lot of salt and smoke and pepper. Even for its young years it is quite complex as it changes tastes all the time :-)
    • Finish
      A lot of herbs and sweet honey smokey barbecue sauce finish. Lovely!
