  4. Hupsende Hippie scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Quite a lot less than the other Kilchoman expressions I tasted.
    • Nose
      Salmiak and citrus. Maybe a little apricot. Light nose.
    • Taste
      Thin. Light salmiak and earthy. Hint of green apple and green banana, but not fruity. The sherry influence is negligible. Peat in particular.
    • Finish
      Very short. Peat. Dry. Bitter.

  8. Carnica scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    Very good, easy-going Everyday-Whisky, which wins over good integrated smoke, malt and a citrus fuitiness!

  10. Fortuna1895 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I like to repeat myself: everything I expect from a Kilchoman ...
    • Nose
      Exactly what I expect from a Kilchoman: direct smoke (of industrial origin here), hard coal & tar, small peaty swabs. Underneath crushed soft fruits, fall fruit & an idea vanilla. The addition of water provides vanilla cream, moist succulent peat & tobacco smoke. Above all, fresh sea air blows.
    • Taste
      Again, typical Islay. No, typical Kilchoman! Dirty vanilla and fat smoke dance on overripe fruit pieces and damp soil. A slight creaminess is probably due to the vanilla. And with water? Yo, Baby, yo ... now it rocks properly & is not for the gentle ones ...: brine, bitter cold smoke, a little bit of fresh oak, some soft fruit, brine & coke.
    • Finish
      Here is the youth of this savage. industrial notes, wet ashtray, a splash of lemon juice, bitter tarry notes & cigarette smoke. Water make a puddle on the beach with a splash of lemon juice from the finish. Add malt with vanilla flavor and a few bitter sounds (wood?)
