  3. MrDvorak scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    The aroma includes salami with mold and black tea, grilled mackerel and oily prunes. The taste is highly smoked, with raisins and prunes. The finish is soft, earthy, with black berries and raisins.

    Well, Kilhoman is just fine fellows, for 5 years and such a not very big fortress - this is a very well-tailored and balanced whisky, pretty.

    RATING: 88pts - | 87 - 89 (B +) → Great | - Always nice to have a bottle of this.

  5. Archer scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    In the parallel comparison of Kilchoman 2012 (Sherry Cask Release), 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016, it actually leaves the most mature impression ...
    • Nose
      87 87
      Blackberries, ripe grapes, raisins, mild peat smoke, removes sulfur very easily (not bothersome). Coffee grounds, caramel, toffee, malt. Already looks quite ripe.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Dry and spicy start, lots of smoke. Wood shavings, some furniture polish, grapes, black cherries, blackberries, nougat chocolate.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium length, dry, herbaceous. The peat smoke is pleasant on the tongue, a little pepper adds flavor, blackberries and dried dates add fruit sweetness.

  6. HrvojeV scored this whisky 98 points Expert Senior

    Perfect combination of peat and sweetness. Strong maritime influence.

  7. Martin1965 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Smoke, sherry, light bright fruits, bacon
    • Taste
      Smoke, light sherry, lots of fruit, sweet, gummy
    • Finish
      Long with smoke

      For the young age, a nice balanced malt with not excessive sherry flavors. Unfortunately quite expensive.

  8. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Smoldering smoke, coal dust, salt, saltpetre, burnt rubber and an ever-increasing peat note. Gradually sweet sherry tones, rainy hay, raw wool, walnuts and slightly "farmy" aromas follow. Becomes more harmonic and less extreme over time. The sweetness wins and enters a nice interplay with peat smoke flavors and salt.
    • Taste
      Surprisingly light but with huge smoke flavors. More stinging cohen smoke, smoldering, saltpetre, salt, burned gum, burned clammy hay, pepper, tincture-like aromas, and delicate sherry sweetness. Maybe also caraway?
    • Finish
      Long, smoldering smoke, which gradually turns into a "sooty" sherry sweetener.

  13. vojt466 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Uff, this is a good smoke. It's like briquettes come to people, they get their old leather coat and their grandmother's bunk, and they all taste green apples :)
    • Nose
      Uff heavily oak - old furniture, old leather, burned gum, nuts, smoke, fine spices, such rounded, on the background of dried fruit .. That strong dubibility reminded me of Gold Cock
    • Taste
      Woodiness, very pronounced dullness, and fatty smoke from the chimney, eternity and spiciness. In the background, gum, chalk, and fruity acidity in the form of green apples
    • Finish
      Burned gum and once again the pungent smoke from the chimney together with the decaying taste of citrus and green apples - a long reverberation

    This whisky can not deny its origin. A true Islay whisky which is characterized by an intense peat note. Woody and fruity elements give the whisky an idiosyncratic character. Tastes delicious!
    • Nose
      Smoky peat rises slightly at the first nosing. Something burned wood pushes through the already smoky peat. A hint of citrus mixes with fruity berries, but smoky peat dominates.
    • Taste
      The taste begins pleasantly peaty before sour fruit notes and spicy woody notes break through the peat. Again and again, sweetness and fruit are flashing, but they are immediately covered with peat.
    • Finish
      With a subtle tingling in the mouth, the finish begins. Of course, the peaty note is dominant. Woody flavors and fruity sweetness also look for their way through the intensive peat.

  19. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    N: Vibrant, vegetal peat-smoke underlined by Kilchoman’s, vibrant, quality spirit.
    T: Intense, dry, light, lemon citrus and mineral notes alongside vegetal=smoke peat. 
    F: Short, savoury-spirit with smoke and minimal fruit sweetness. 
    C: Competent, focused and somewhat austere modern classic.

    The depth is missing. The character.

  23. peatbogger scored this whisky 90 points Specialist

    Again a gem from Kilchoman.

    Bolder and with more umph than Machir Bay.

    Reasonably priced in todays market.

  24. Dyno scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    that fat sherry/peaty nose! and saying a pretty decent taste backs it up is kind of underrating this whisky. even better then the 2015 edition, which was better then the 2014 which was better then the 2013! kilchoman just keeps delivering... hopefully the nose does not fade while the volume dimishes!
