  1. Julia E S scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    nose

    Smoky, very organic smoke (grilled vegetables: zucchini and melanzanis), in addition to a nice canned peach, subtle citrus notes and something farm-like, cereal.

    Taste / disposal

    First canned peach and cereals, then cucumber water that keeps until the finish. The smoke is very organic, as in the nose. The oak is very discreet. Everything together very well. The finish is medium long.

    Overall a good straight smoker!

  2. ZMAng scored this whisky 83 points Member Senior

    Sweet, smoky nose. Thin, no cling. Quite a long finish.

    One notices the development towards more maturity at Kilchoman quite clearly. This bottling is the first to no longer have a vintage, where it is believed to be so far that you can consistently deliver consistent quality and a consistent profile. It would be nice, because this is an absolutely successful standard that does not have to hide from anything. I would be interested to know how little Oloroso barrels are in the Vatting, because even in the fourth generation, one can only find the sherry influence with a lot of imagination.

    Now that I have read, no Oloroso barrels are mentioned anymore. Also, the bottlings should still vary widely and the qualities vary, which would be a pity. Let's wait ...
    • Nose
      Right at the beginning a very well-balanced nose with some yellow fruit, clear, but soft, slightly phenolic smoke, some iodine, salt, acid (camphor) and mineral notes. Everything seems to be well integrated. Life shifts him a bit on the mineral side, but the whole thing remains very balanced. Heat brings here no significant change.
    • Taste
      The picture continues in the mouth: Even if there are a few metallic notes here again, the overall picture is very balanced and well-balanced. The sweetness is clearly dark, blockade and licorice meet it quite well, some anise comes to gossamer acid, bitter tones are present, but very mild. The Pfeffrigkeit from the older bottlings is now completely gone, but late on the finish a licorice note on.
    • Finish
      Instead of the Pfeffrigkeit in the mouth this filling offers clear hints of liquorice in the finish, including the appropriate stunning of the oral cavity. In the background, the sweetness slowly goes completely, and although the superficial liquorice has disappeared, a dry peat remains, not ashen, on the tongue. Overall, the finish is very long.
