Notes from a blind tasting.
I would have bet on Islay, but would probably have landed on the south coast or at Bunnahabhain. Of course, Kilchoman absolutely fits! It is interesting that I still felt the first 100% Islays (inaugural, 2nd and 3rd) as very immature, of which nothing was felt here. In principle, this is already normal with Kilchoman with the young grenades.
First extremely closed, only strangely musty notes and freshly cut vegetables (green beans?) Can be found, and possibly again, smoke? He gets time first. After he has received, but show quite rich flavors. Yellow groats, disinfectants, bare rock, stone dust, and probably another idea smoke. However, some strange, indefinable notes are still there. It warms more and more stranger, unfolds a wild chemical cocktail and changes with each additional degree, which is heated to the whisky. Nothing that could even be described in any way. Later, apart from disinfectants and coal fires, there is nothing left to be felt.
In the mouth, he is no longer so strange in the least. Strong acidity and the typical malty peat sweetness, much more than expected in the nose, give a rendezvous, to the back also a few tart notes. The acid turns fruity, citrusy and chemically. The alcohol is normally strong, the mouthfeel slightly oily.
The finish is relatively long, it warms significantly, acidity, sweetness and slight bitterness hold evenly, in the end, an ash occupancy of the tongue really long.
