Whisky Reviews for Kilchoman 2011

- The nose is really great. I like it. Unfortunately, he can not hide his youth in taste and finish. Reminds me strongly of a Classic of Islay. Only that I do not feel this young Water is good for the malt

The first nose is for me surprisingly not as strong smoky, as initially thought. The Kilchoman-typical ashen smoke remains elegantly in the background and forms a nice contrast to a very fresh-fruity note, which is refined with a slightly tart tainted impact. Apples, some honey, lemon and spearmint.
Powerful, intensive start, the 50 volume percent fit perfectly. Very oily, slightly buttery, sweet and spicy. A wave of peat and ashes rolling through the oral cavity on the palate. The smoke is very well integrated for my taste. Here, too, find some mint and even light herbal notes again. Slightly sour.
Very long and warm. Dominant smoke, which gradually loses the upper hand against a pleasantly spicy herbal note and a tart sweetness. A little salt and dark chocolate complete the complex finish.
- Considering his still young age, that's pretty good whisky. Kilchoman has pretty quickly got the hang of it, which then shows itself to the now available 10yo and older.
Cold, ashen smoke. A touch of raw ham. Sweet grapes. Green bark. Machine oil. Pepper. Still pretty teen in the nose.
For 50% quite mild onset with peat smoke, licorice, pepper and grapes. Lemon water. Although he can not hide his youth on his tongue, he already has a surprising depth.
Not so short, with cold, ashen smoke, slices of lemon, licorice, pepper, caramel and toffee.
lemon, ripe and fresh apples, bit of peat, nicely balances so far. pear and smoked ham. decent amount of smoke, tea leaves and a whiff of mint.
ripe apples, smoked meat, peat, bit of black pepper, salty licorice
smoky, bit of ketjap, earthy, burned wood. dark chocolate bitterness. minerally and also licorice
- I don't always need that in the intensity of sweetness, but when I feel like it, it fits perfectly in the combination with the smoke
Honey-sweet, with dry smoke as a counterpart, sweet cupcake topping, apricot, Sauternes is definitely the program here, something slightly floral swings behind the smoke, also a little buttercream
creamy, very sweet, spicy smoke, a pinch of cinnamon, apricot, honey, vanilla, you have to like sweetness, intense, good mouthfeel
here the smoke really comes into its own, of course still as sweet as paper, candy floss, slightly yellow fruit, like candy
