  1. Archer scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    The struck match gives it that certain something ...
    • Nose
      86 86
      Greeted with beautiful notes of sherry: raisins, dried figs, nougat, marzipan. Removes a torn match. Mild peat smoke. Blackberry jelly, cloves, allspice.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Creamy and full of acceleration. Children - Em eukal with black cherries. Blackberries, warm peat smoke, malt, fresh bread dough, herbs.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Becomes a little thin, but smoke and sweet grape notes linger for a long time.

  2. HammerHead scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      85 85
      Mild bonfire smoke, spicy with cinnamon, nutmeg and some ginger, blueberries, plum, piccalilly, a little nutty and a sawdusty wood note.
    • Taste
      84 84
      A red fruit candy sweetness, currants, greasy smoke, toasted wood, walnuts, tobacco, black pepper, ginger.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Long: red fruit sweets, black liquorice, wet soil, spicy with leather, ashes and charcoal.

  3. Whisky.Hedonist.MY scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Serge rated this 90pts, let's see how much it fares in my book
    • Nose
      88 88
      On the nose, it has a bit of everything - burnt rubber, burnt wooden stacks, some light earthiness, sweet sherry notes, some blueberries and fruit jam. Bit of sulphur-ish, struck match, and the dried fruits become more apparent after a while. Chocolate with raisins appeared after a sip.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Sweet and savory, with gentle smokiness and saltiness. Nice sherry influence which is not overwhelming, with nice touch of wood smoke and oakiness. Some slight bitterness and licorice.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Rather long, tad of rubbery and nuttiness, dried orange peel, and warm smokiness.

  4. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Good standard, Kilchoman and Oloroso go very well together for me
    • Nose
      Spicy smoke blows towards you, tobacco, cigarette ash, lemon, plus rather dry sherry, some cinnamon, slightly malty, vanilla also comes through, freshly unpacked printer paper, some milk chocolate, but a slightly fresh and clearly spicy smoke is definitely dominant here , also flowery, it becomes more and more lovely over time
    • Taste
      creamy, sweet, chocolate, cinnamon smoke, plum, malt, ash, floral here too, some oak, the dominant note here is the creamy chocolate with ashy smoke, very pleasant to drink
    • Finish
      the chocolate becomes dark, slightly nutty, creamy, fresh smoke, minimally minty, the smoke loses its strength at the back, medium-long

  7. Hupsende Hippie scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

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

  8. diamond2000 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    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.
