  1. Gere scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A beautiful Kilchoman very well balanced with small facets that make it very interesting.
    • Nose
      fine peat smoke is added by citrus fruits. Especially the grapefruit predominates. Any fragrance is faint but permanent, as if hiding behind the light peat.
    • Taste
      an oily mass that spreads beautifully on the palate. The peat smoke is now more noticeable.
      Tobacco leaves with light vanilla notes are initially coming in the background but more and more.
    • Finish
      The finish is long and warm and nicely rounded.
      The initial peat smoke note slowly gives way to the malt and vanilla sweetness.

  2. Hupsende Hippie scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Lemon / orange and green apple. Light peat. Fairly weak nose.
    • Taste
      Better than the nose. Sweet and fruity (intensely sweet apple, yellow fruit?) Also vanilla and milk chocolate. Peat, buttery and oily. Lime. Slightly salty. Mint. Little salmiak.
    • Finish
      Lemon zest and smoke. Bit bitter. Mint. Bourbon taste lingers for a long time. Also some licorice.

  3. Blindbob scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Not usually a fan of Islay, This was not overwhelming and peated just right for me. A very good drink for 6yo, but a bit on the pricey side.
    • Nose
      Peat. Medicinal Iodine. Warm liquorice.
    • Taste
      Smokey peat. a sweet not I couldn't place.
    • Finish
      Quite a long finish. Again something sweet that I couldn't quite place.

    • Nose
      Peat, rubber, but also fruity, some citrus, apples. Vanilla, tobacco and (wood fire) smoke
    • Taste
      Salmiak kick at the beginning, lakrisal. Peperig, also sweet, honey, caramel and milk chocolate. Also peat and smoke
    • Finish
      Pretty long, slightly less pepper, still warming and stimulating. Tobacco, fire smoke, peat, some chocolate.
