  1. Tommyknocker scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    If the finish fetziger would be the best Kilchoman I had so far in the glass, but much is not missing. Enjoy pure.
    • Nose
      I won! Finally another different profile. Very intense notes of freshly cooked apricot jam, unfortunately burned :) Sweet peaty and caramel, reminiscent of the Laphi 10 CS. Forest honey, spicy fruit tea. After a while in the glass heavy blood orange and hot raspberries. HOT! With water: gets stinky like Port Charlotte, but not disturbing. Behind it now fruity, pears, apples, less citrus fruit. Can be done, does not have to be.
    • Taste
      Pure: also here an abundance of aromas, nutty spiciness first, then dried oranges, syrup, mead, white pepper, bacon. Done is the menu. With water: Less hefitg, less intense, otherwise very little change.
    • Finish
      rather short, sweet, peaty, ashes.

    not bad, but certainly not 90+, you sense the high quality of the spirit, no doubt about that, but you cant neglect the lack of age.... Kilchoman will have fantastic whisky in a few years (great spirit plus good casks), but this amount of money now for 3 3/4 yr old whisky, thx but no thx, there is plenty of choice elsewhere...

    with and without water very well, is a matter of taste. I am very curious what the advertised Madeira Wood 2015 will bring. If he is nearly as good, he is a must!
    • Nose
      fruity smoke, raisins, leather, cinnamon, over time Schnuptabak comes out, also some iodine
    • Taste
      the classic Kilchoman smoke, intense sweet & heavy fruit, light sulfur, slightly burnt,
      With milk comes milk chocolate to the fore, the sulfur is gone, through the interplay of the fruit and the chocolate, I must immediately remember Mon Cherie
    • Finish
      long with a lot of smoke, still this note of burned in the background
      with water, the chocolate is also here

  4. croz scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    One of the best Kilchoman IMHO...
    • Nose
      Leather, peat, tobacco/cigarr and candied apples
    • Taste
      Initially sweet with raisins turning into smoke/peat and some bitterness
    • Finish
      Long peated, complex, bitter/sweet finish
