Nose

enorm fruchtig, eher "junge Früchte", viel süße, eingelegte Aprikose, Birne. Dazu der schöne kräftige, aber nie stinkige Kilchoman Küstenrauch. Schön salzig mit vielen Grillaromen. Dazu frisches, gezuckertes Popcorn. Leckerst!

Taste

süßer und kräftig rauchiger Beginn mit fleischig salzigem Charakter. Die Frucht ist hier "dunkler" als in der Nase, Himbeere, Waldfrucht. Wird dann aber recht schnell etwas kratziger, hier macht sich die Jugend bemerkbar.

Finish

kurz, süß, rauchig.

Comments

tolle Nase und schöne Beginn im Mund, auf Grund der Jugend eben noch wenig Abgang. Aber das wird schon, wir reden von einem 3-4 Jährigen Whisky!

Released in 2015 as a small release, consisting of 70% bourbon, 20% sherry and 10% various wine casks. It can be a big risk involving wine casks, so it was bottled as a 4yo to avoid the risk of over doing it. Originally planned to be bottled at 55%, it was found to be too spirity - so 50% it is.


N: Xmas cake, Bruichladdich ‘Sherry Classic’ vibe [remember that oddity WB?],… with brandy cream and all the wine gums. Same oily, yet dry Kilchoman signature, though ‘big’ - those first-fills rather ‘obvious’ for the first time tonight.

T: Resinous and candid in its makeup, although its still quite a combo.

F: Dry chocolatey sherry.

C: A freaky one as using Madeira may suggest. Nick brilliantly coins this a ‘Gestalt’ malt at the same moment as i’m swinging between yes & no, leaning in the end firmly to a yes. Why? - it's fun, it works and whether you like it or not, those Madeira casks are rather superb. Looking for a Madeira casked single malt, look no further - recommended. Watch out for a release matured in red wine casks, due around September - likely to be a genuine one off.

Nose

F: Pink! Spätburgunder Weißherbst

N: alkoholisch verschlossen, doch vielversprechend - Vorsicht beim riechen!

Taste

dezent süß - weinig, etwas Rauch - würzig: Fenchelsamen?, sehr interessant!

Finish

lang, alkoholisch, s.o.

Comments

+H2O: öffnet die Nase, wird differenzierter, etwas bitterer, etwas Obstler, nach einiger Zeit: gekochte Kartoffeln

Vielschichtig! Kein Mainstream und gelungen.
