  1. CluaranDeilgneach scored this whisky 84 points Newbie

    Colour: Pale gold.
    Every whisky has a story to tell. One behind this expression of Kilchoman is short and simple, but bonnie nontheless.

    After a storm that thrown up logs on the seashore, there is calm. And here we stand, on still-wet sand, feeling gentle touch of sea breeze while drinking a tea with lemon slice. There is a crackling bonfire nearby, from where smell of smoke reaches us...

      A wee touch of gentle smoke from the nearby bonfire. Salty wind from the sea. Some wood logs drifting in the foam. Lemon.
    • Taste
      82 82
      Simple. Sweet and salty with an oily structure. Gentle taste, quite smooth for such a youngster.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium-long, smoky with some oak and white pepper on the palate, nevertheless pleasant finish.

  3. wisekycourse scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    its strength, the creamy peat and a lemon meringue that remains from the beginning to the end of the tasting! Magnifies in the second half of the bottle! For an islay, it's a plus!
    • Nose
      grassy, ​​peat, intense lemon
    • Taste
      fat peat, medicinal, on the burnt tire
    • Finish
      monolithic

  5. Calmar scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    Slack and faded Kilhoman, sad looks against the background of his fellow barrel fortress; a very modest set of components, everything is simple and unpretentious, a little develops in the aftertaste - sherry derivatives begin to appear, but the situation as a whole does not save.
    • Nose
      Clear, sweet-peat, sea, the coals of a long-burnt fire, an empty smokehouse.
    • Taste
      Watery, peat, burnt sugar, burnt biscuits, burnt branches.
    • Finish
      Spicy, kvasnoe wort, dark beer, kvass, burnt biscuits, coal, prunes.

  10. holborndrinker scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    A decent dram, especially for such a young whisky
    • Nose
      Quite subtle on the nose with faint medicinal smells emerging.
    • Taste
      Quite a gentle tasting dram, although there is a linering aftertaste.
    • Finish
      Long and quite smooth.
