    Colour:
    White wine - sunlight
    Nose:
    Very smoky and with a lot of dull cardboard-character. Soft lemon extract, lime and sweet accents of yellow, ripe apples. In addition wet coal, ashes, peat and maritime sea air.
    Taste:
    Sweetish, slightly sour and at the same time with a lot of sugar sweet peat. Add lime, salt, bergamot, wet charcoal, some honey, but unfortunately the sweetness is mostly based on sugar.
    Finish:
    Medium long - now tart and peatier, tenderly woody and with a dull and wet character. The fruit is strongly suppressed. A dry tartness of wood and peat determines the finish.

  5. Segens scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Wow I simply love Kilchoman. This dram is another masterpiece of this distillery and I am happy that they have only started their business ;-) So much good stuff to come.
    • Nose
      Smoke smoke smoke :-) Very nice after a while you have bacon, honey & vanilla. A nose that I really like. 
    • Taste
      First sweet (honey) and only a bit of smoke which is suprising after the nose. Then I have notes of Barbecue Sauce, salty bacon (a lot of salt :-) )
    • Finish
      Nice long smooth, smokey, sweet, very very well done.

  6. rottendon scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Overall, he gets 84 points from me, the nose and the finish are great, the taste is a bit too metallic. Alcohol already fits. He is exceptionally strong, but I can not determine burning. So in terms of alcohol, the piglet has burned more, but the Kilchoman has three times more fire in terms of warming and such. But we all want that, right? Notes from an online chat tasting
    • Nose
      First the usual smoke board. If the first bourbon notes, vanilla and caramel, as well as a proper load of ham. The alcohol is once again perfectly integrated. No bizz in the nose. Warm up ... Egg, when heated, the alcohol taps but then quite nice. Warms up in the nose a beautiful harmonious overall picture, the smoke very ashy in the background, the alcohol is also back in the background, a little sweet aroma of grilled fruits, very light citrus notes. Nice nose! Let's try ...
    • Taste
      Hui yes, goose bumps. Crisp alcohol, although it does not burn. Pretty good metallic. On the tongue are added a bitter herbal mixture and sweet honey. But I find it less sweet than the Machir Bay standards. Otherwise, I agree, which can Kilchoman much better, Feis Ile 2015 or the club bottlings z. B.
    • Finish
      In the finish, which is again very long, the sweetness is slow, a salty bacon note stays much longer and the ash sticks almost eternally on the tongue.

  7. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Pretty easy to knit. Young, aggressive peat hammer with in the case neat sweetness (+) and still too much metal (-). If you want that - great. But so far, for example, I found all the "Classic of Islay" that I tried more interesting.
    • Nose
      He needs water - without me only dry smoke and a stinging in the nose.
      Then: sweet, cereal, biscuit, vanilla, applesauce ... and empty can. So a clear - youthful-metallic-fresh note that does not bother much.
    • Taste
      Smoke (ashen, bitter) and fat sweetness (vanilla, caramel, cereals) keep well in the balance, but the alcohol burns quite nicely and the can is also there.
    • Finish
      rather long, metallic-bitter vs. fat-sweet
