Whisky Reviews for Kilchoman 2009

26 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.20 points

  1. Archer scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Only five years - actually not to be believed. At the back he shows some smoke - much more than at the beginning - but you don't get the feeling that the smoke conceals the lack of age.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Cold smoke, an ashtray full of old glowing stems. Lemon slices, vanilla, honey. Despite the clear smoke, it has a refreshing effect. Mild herbal mix. No green notes at all.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Despite the almost 60% alcohol content, it is surprisingly pleasant on the tongue. Present smoke, warmer than in the nose. Peaty, less ashy. Lemon juice, pepper, nutmeg, hot pepper spice. A little lovage. Machine oil, seaweed. Vanilla icecream.
    • Finish
      85 85
      In the end, smoke and lemon remain the dominant aromas. Not too long in the finish, but still so long and dense that you would not expect five years of aging.

  2. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    17e BOL-tasting van de ProefOlympics. ‘Islay Peat... of niet? Best whisky of the evening.
    • Nose
      Spices - pepper, nutmeg, peaty, ashes, fruity - red apple, citrus and pine apple. Snap beens, liquorice, rubber and sweet pine apples.
    • Taste
      Pepper, asshes, pine apple, briny, liquorice - trekdrop and honey.
    • Finish
      A bit drying with ashes, peaty and vanilla.

  3. Calmar scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A good barrel molding, very rich and energetic, a bit harsh, bitter-sweet in general, good work with the fortress.
    • Nose
      Saturated, dry, first nose - plaster, lemon; Smoked bacon, light mild notes, fermented apple juice, corn, a few bandages, ash.
    • Taste
      Sharp, fatty, sweet-peat, light pepper, ash, peat, syrup, bitter young bark.
    • Finish
      Spicy, smoky-peat, bitter-sweet, grassy bitterness, oak, smoked products, citrus fruits.

  4. pdby scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Straightforward, understandable, with the aroma of roasted nuts, soot, citrus and hay, the taste is sweet with a slight bitterness, with nuances of salted nuts, butter and burning, the finish is developing, with notes of soot, malt and citrus.
    Very good, the fortress is insidiously hiding, you can’t give it a taste of more than 50%, and there it’s already under 60. I liked the interesting balance of creaminess and bright oven soot.

    RATING: 86pts - [n22, t21, f22, b21] → | 86-89: Remarkable |

    Salt, lemon, chicken broth, peppers, toasts, potatoes in a uniform, corn, walnuts, fried peanuts, chocolate truffles, mint, medicines, ashes, concrete, sulfur, dust. Oily and very gastronomic!

  8. HW74 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Previously rated the whisky 89 points, now 87. Compared to 2017 Machir Bay and 2018 Loch Gorm, it is a bit less complex. Where I like the enormous amount of smoke in the CS good.
