  1. HammerHead scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Tasting notes for the outstanding first (2015) batch.
    • Nose
      90 90
      Peat smoke and bonfires, meringue, schoe polish, a dried sherry fruitiness, mint, cinnamon and nutmeg.
    • Taste
      89 89
      Dried sherry fruits (peach and sultanas) some citrus, dry peat smoke, burnt pine needles, peppery wood spices.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Medium to long: scorched wood notes smoke, a lingering honied and fruity sweetness.

  2. BeatF scored this whisky 85 points Moderator

    Wonderfully rounded and heartwarming everyday drop! Has that something of the animalistic, metallic sound of the first Kilchomans, which is no longer dominant, but gives the little water a good character.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Torfaschige odors spread already when opening the bottle and pouring into the dram. As soon as the nose approaches the glass, the initial scent is enveloped by crystallized honey, citric elements and caramel. Masterfully composed: peaty, sweet, sour and a bit sharp (peppery).
    • Taste
      83 83
      Goldiciously oily, the potion flows into the throat and unfolds there its pleasant effect.
    • Finish
      83 83
      When swallowing, the main components (peat, honey, spices, but also soft pepper) separate a bit, but find balanced again and remain medium in length.

  3. schengel10 scored this whisky 75 points Connoisseur

    Well done - a decent Islay Malt!
    [Color] bright gold;
    • Nose
      fruity, woody smoke aromas, sherry, spice, oak;
    • Taste
      powerful sweet onset, citrus fruits, aromatic smoke, ashes, some sherry, oak, pepper, tingling, young, complex;
    • Finish
      medium-long, oily finish; in the aftermath smoke and nice pepper;

  5. Grutslurp scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    • Nose
      Meaty and fruity
    • Taste
      Peat and sherry combine to a BBQ smoke reminiscent flavour.
    • Finish
      Dry, vegetal peat, and some of the sherry meatiness sticks around.

  6. Calmar scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Young, unpretentious, but unexpectedly dense for its low fortress, cohesive, spicy.
    • Nose
      Open, smoke-peat with a tangible admixture of juicy fresh rubber, fire charcoal, burnt branches, in style close to Ardbeg.
    • Taste
      Dense, sufficiently saturated for such a young Molta, sweet, with a soft peppery wave, cream, condensed milk, ash, activated charcoal.
    • Finish
      Sweet-smoky, coals, ash, condensed milk.

  8. lapinbilly did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Very successful this sherry finish!
    • Nose
      The nose is peaty, dry peat, mineral, dry fruits and exotic.
    • Taste
      On the palate it is round, peat fades before the grapes and spices.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium-long on smoke and fruit.
