Whisky Reviews for Kilchoman 2011
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.10 points
- the noble fusion of rum with Kilchoman makes this whisky something special
Very subtle peat smoke in combination with slightly salty and exotic fruits.
The palate shows the power. The Kilchhomen shows its strong side. Short Pfeffrig dan fruity sweet until the peat smoke widens and widens
Zuert bleit the peaty, love smoky long and more and more you notice a slight amount of salt.
- Nose: Agrimmes, Pear, Maritime, Herbal, Fir and Resin, Vanilla, Caroni and its petroleum notes, Daisy, Marmalade, Rear Nose of Rum and Brown Sugar. Water helps reveal Frangipane and Violet
Taste: Caroni, Grass, Acidulous, Mint, Sweet, Honey, Cereals, Chocolate, Melon, Avocado, Gourmand, Orange, Patissier, Curry and Pepper.
Finale: Chocolate, Almonds, a mixture of peat and oil very pleasant.
Note: Very nice, but requires a lot of water to not be too aggressive.
- A rather original Kilchoman, especially marked by pepper, but not my favorite.
quite neutral, a little white wine, made rather mineral, a hint of peat and pepper.
Much more expressive than in nose. We are dealing with an unusual Kilchoman, with a slightly sweet and tangy entry followed by powerful peppery notes. A little licorice and olives in the background. Texture quite fat, always feeling of minerality.
Quite long, powerful, lots of spices, peat, slightly farmy notes.
This bottling, finished in a cask that previously contained Caroni rum, was produced with barley grown and malted at the Kilchoman distillery farm. It fearlessly and entirely appropriates all the aromas and flavours of this famous and rare Trinidad and Tobago rum in order to really bring out its profoundly malty, peaty, smoky, salty and mineral character. On the finish this 100% Islay Kilchoman shows stunning presence and elegance.
Profile: full and unctuous, the nose reveals a peat of extreme finesse burgeoning with salty, fruity (pear) and exotic aromas. A note of petrol highlights the influence of the Caroni. The palate centres more on the rum and its notes of hydrocarbon. The peat and smoke gradually resurface.
Single Cask no. 754/11 – Caroni Rum finish
Limited edition of 300 bottles
Exclusive to LMDWTASTING NOTE
Appearance : vibrant gold.Nose : rich, concentrated. On the initial nose, the peat and smoke seem nourished by the Caroni’s sweet perfumes. Their thirst quenched, these two essential elements in the aromatic palette express a confident and firm character, with slices of apple freely releasing their slightly tangy juice. Allowed to breathe, the malted barley seems to have come straight out of the kiln.Palate : clear, lively. The same fruity acidity gives the attack on the palate huge momentum. Notes of fine hail, salt and citrus fruit (lemon) appear alongside delicate and slightly ashy smoke. Its mineral character is revealed in its finest light. Blue and limestone slates literally break apart on the palate. The end of the palate is herbaceous (lucerne, straw).Overall : long, resolute. The empyreumatic finish is like tarmac melting under the hot rays of the sun. At the same time, the enveloping perfumes of white flowers (lily, iris) create great elegance and lyricism. The retro-nasal olfaction is like tasting a delicious smoky tea or a vervain infusion. The empty glass cuts to the chase with malted barley, peat and smoke.Note: They also released a 5y old bottling - cask 531/11 https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/87206/kilchoman-2011
