Whisky Reviews for Kilchoman 10th Anniversary Release
25 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.28 points
- It will take a while before I will taste another Kilchoman. If could be just weak/average peat driven malt but it's even worse - full of false sweet notes that I don"t want to name at all. It"s been a while since i tasted such a bad whisky..
- Composition of differently matured barrels, whisky that is no more than seven years old.
- Tasting Notes:
- Exciting enough that you will not get bored. He really does not tear me off the stool, though.
Citrus, cold ash, sweet malt, herb bed, hay
Sharp start with lots of lemon and subtle ash, sweet molasses, subtle herbal notes in the background, light tropical fruit (apricot, pineapple), coconut
Medium-long, decaying ash, which is replaced by herbal notes, becoming drier with increasing saltiness
- Not as hefty ashy as other Kilchomans, but it is very good balanced and just simply very very enjoyable.
A bit restraint for Kilchoman measures. Lots of fruit combined with earthy ashy peat smoke.....
Spicy, a bit burnt notes and very pleasant ashy peat smoke
Lingering peat, in all its simple beauty.
- Colour: Gold
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.
