Whisky Reviews for Kilchoman 2007

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.85 points

  1. Ostfriese scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Quite heavy smoke rises from the glass. It is interwoven with the smell of grain and hops. In the background are medical notes, iodine and cooked fruit. Peat moss, sea grass and a salty sea breeze push forward and are gradually replaced by citrus fruits and vanilla. The nose fades away slightly peppery and with oak notes.
    • Taste
      First sweet fruits, then powerful smoke spreads in the mouth. Peaty, earthy notes followed by vanilla, lime and blood oranges. Peppery oak forms the end.
    • Finish
      Long and warm. There is cool, ashy smoke in the mouth and throat accompanied by oranges and slightly salty notes. Hints of latte macchiato and very present but pleasant oak notes.

    I like Kilchoman. They make a very enjoyable whisky with a realtively young age. This is the oldest Kilchoman I've had so far (9 years) and it is promising to know a Kilchoman gets even better when it gets older.

      Fruit, vanilla, oak, pepper, citrus and lots of alcohol.
      Powerfull!

      With some water it really opens up. Sweeter than the nose suggests. Not as much peat as you would expect of a Kilchoman. Very nice and 'round'. But it could do with a finish in another type of cask to give it an extra dimention.
      I realise it is disrespectful, but I added a drop of Glendronach 18 oloroso cask to my second dram and that makes it a lot more interesting.

      Never ending.
      The finish is the best part.
      It starts with pepper, some peat, going to vanilla, sweet fruit and ending with oak and vanilla.
