  1. MrYens scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

  2. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    There have been more 100% Islay releases. This one looks a bit young and I notice the lower ppm number so far most clearly.
    • Nose
      Starts totally malty, then very fresh, citrus notes, grated lemon peel, a little peach, little smoke, a little vanilla, but malt and lemon dominate, but then comes over quite young, but I do not mean alcohol or pungency, but just the given flavors
    • Taste
      very oily, creamy, vanilla, also some lemon, yes smoke is there, also a bit more than in the nose, but still not very much, sweet, also here malty, a hint of floral meadow (floral)
    • Finish
      in the background, the smoke actually gets a little bit stronger, here also the peach from the nose, fruity, a pinch of cinnamon, a little bitter

  3. Calmar scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A good mole, according to its strength, is worse than barrel releases, but much better than the standard releases of a commercial fortress, a good combination of barrel and base, despite the dominance of phenolic derivatives, bourbons are also harmoniously intertwined in the overall picture.
    • Nose
        Open, dry, smoke, smoked, salted cucumbers, dry peat, light coniferous notes, resin, lime peel.
    • Taste
      Dense, smoke-sweet, orange syrup, peat, coal, burnt caramel.
    • Finish
      Sweet and sour, peat and smoke, smoked products, candies, a little lemon zest, grassy bitterness.

  5. vojt466 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    In the smell of a great, taste and reverberation, very good even though somehow extra complex. But the price. Anyway, Loch Gorm tasted more
    • Nose
      Earthquake, wet gravel, peat, marshmallow, spice, finely sweetly rounded by malt and vanilla background
    • Taste
      Peat, sweet rounded smoke, chocolate biscuits, latte, citrus, a good dose of pepper
    • Finish
      In reverberation, woodiness, vanilla, earthy, gum and spice - medium-long

  6. matts scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    An overall successful, young Kilchoman. The nose I found in the first impression (solvents) a little getting used to; but she was getting better and better.
    • Nose
      First hints of solvent. Then smoke and wet hay: for me, what I typically associate with Kilchoman. In addition clearly tobacco and in the background exotic fruits (bananas?) As well as a slight orange note.
    • Taste
      In the beginning quite sharp and immediately peat smoke. Slight impact of iodine. Then a tart nuttiness and cereal notes, which are increasingly sweet.
    • Finish
      Dry, long and smoky: peat, ashes and some salt.

  8. Georges scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Peat smoke, sweet, salty
    • Taste
      Peat smoke, salty, nutty, buttery, oysters
    • Finish
      Medium long, smoky, salty, nutty

  9. Shane_IL scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    This was very toned down compared to the regular Kilchoman profile, it was much sweeter, kind of like Bruichladdich stuff. As an unabashed peat-head I personally didn’t like it so much, but I still recommend trying it if you get the chance as it is something quite unique, and perhaps that sweeter, less smoky profile might appeal to you.
    Tasted with Malt Mongers Israel (MMI).

    • Nose
      Sweet malt. Honey. Grapes. Earth. Peaches. Grass.
    • Taste
      Thatch. Grapes juice. Coal dust. Ash. Honey.
    • Finish
      Long. Sweet like Bruichladdich. Grappa. Honey. Sweet green herbs.
