    Would be better on cask strength. And if it were cheaper.

      Delicious, subtle and balanced. Red fruit (raspberry / grape). Little peat. Lime.
    • Taste
      Tasty Peat. Candy. Raspberry / plum and lime. Buttery. Dry spicy. Light, summery. Bit thin.
    • Finish
      Peat, red fruit, earthy

    Aroma: first, as it is not surprising, there is some kind of a mixture of ripe sweet fruits, then smoke of a fire mixed with prunes and dark raisins, oak bark, freshness, a little mint, coal dust, chalk, vinegar, not alcoholic.
    Taste: sweet, smoked bacon, prunes, raisins, marmalade, all that was lying in the smokehouse and well smoked, a little minerality.
    Finish: long, damped firewood, ashen, sweetness, hints of pine needles and flavored pipe tobacco.
    Rating: 86
    Bottom line: a little more interesting than his fellow Machir Bay, well done, especially pleased with the very long finish. But whisky is only 5 years old, not bad! For interest, Ugadale poured himself a little, and here, of course, everything became clear ... Kilkhoman looked like a poor relative in the background, and the price is not very different, and perhaps better to throw a little and get a drink of a completely different class.

  8. Oldpultnie scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Interesting and bit different Islay malt.
    • Nose
      Light, fresh and soft nose. Spices, light smoke and citrus. Everything in a nice balance, nothing dominant coming up.
    • Taste
      Soft fruit, peaty smoke first followed by spicy notes after. A little oily feeling on the side.
    • Finish
      Medium finish with a lingering smoke and citrus ending.

  9. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    From the unfortunately very rausschmeckbarem young age the best rausholtholt.
    • Nose
      Full, clear citrus notes such as lime and lemon, orange but also acid berries, chocolate and signs of smoke
    • Taste
      Sweet berries, apricot, partly immature with elegant smoke in between and more fruitiness, with some salt and spice
    • Finish
      Smoke, dry, smoke & berries remain

  10. KayMeertens scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Peat, lime, orange and gingerbread.
    • Taste
      Peat, tangerine, gingerbread and pepper.
    • Finish
      Peat, gingerbread and a little peach. Rather dry.
