  4. ddertzaar did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    Exciting enough that you will not get bored. He really does not tear me off the stool, though.
    • Nose
      Citrus, cold ash, sweet malt, herb bed, hay
    • Taste
      Sharp start with lots of lemon and subtle ash, sweet molasses, subtle herbal notes in the background, light tropical fruit (apricot, pineapple), coconut
    • Finish
      Medium-long, decaying ash, which is replaced by herbal notes, becoming drier with increasing saltiness

  5. GJR scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Not as hefty ashy as other Kilchomans, but it is very good balanced and just simply very very enjoyable.
    • Nose
      A bit restraint for Kilchoman measures. Lots of fruit combined with earthy ashy peat smoke.....
    • Taste
      Spicy, a bit burnt notes and very pleasant ashy peat smoke
    • Finish
      Lingering peat, in all its simple beauty.

    Colour: Gold

    Body: Full

    Nose: Quite rich and complex. Sweet, spicy, fruity, smoky, mineral and green notes. Quite creamy, a little popcorn maltiness, vanilla pod, green oak, lemon and lime citrus, peach and apricot. More Sherried and fruitily sweet after a bit.

    Water: Softer, darker and less green. Soft lemon, chocolate, oak coming out with liquorice, a little dry with peated grist. Tobacco and some Sherried fruit developing after a bit.

    Taste: Sharp arrival, lovely lemon zest and peel, then stony lemon juice with peat smoke developing and mingling with it. I wouldn't it's say complex but it's integrated and powerful.

    Water: Softer arrival, fruity at first then cold sea water. Oak developing with Sherry fruit, liquorice and some oakiness, a little tannic and much more drying, then powerful smoke really kicks up with the stony lemon juice coming back. More bitter and tannic after a bit.

    Finish: Long length. A peaty puff, then lasting lemon citrus and mineral smoke. With water- More sherried and oaky with tannins, coffee and chocolate.

    N-
    Almond and nutty. Huge pungent ashes smokes in the glass. Solid dried
    fruits. With water-salty and mineral sea shell, malt sweetness and
    grassy.

    P- Sweet monk fruits,
    fig and intense burning smokes. Full strength and mouthwatering. With
    water- more approachable with fresh sour berries and touch of vanilla.

    F- Long and intense. Immensely spicy and deep, creamy. With water- sweet berries jam. Stiff and serious.
