Whisky Reviews for Kilchoman 2006

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.82 points

  1. oppi scored this whisky 75 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Very fresh and light, smoke comes in later
    • Taste
      Immediately comes a strongly smoky sweetness, saliva-forming and almost viscosity. Then there are some youthful metallic notes
    • Finish
      The sweetness stays the smoke goes

  2. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Pretty fresh nose. Something like eucalyptus and herb candy. Citrus too. Maritime notes. With water it becomes even more full and less fresh. Plus the Kilchoman smoke, which often reminds me of incense. A surprising amount of wood flavor for its age.
    Decent Kilchoman. The barrel wasn't the most intense now, but it complements well with the Kilchoman.

  3. PuddingmitHaut did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Something very special a la anise comes up first, smoke is there, but not too dominant, quite maritime, seaweed, distant lemon
    • Taste
      Nice intensity, smoke with pleasant sweetness in the interplay, creamy, herbal notes, fine fresh smoky.

  4. Ostfriese scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A whisky that makes enjoyment enjoyable. I like these well-made bourbon whiskys with "rough edges" that are not round but consistent.
    • Nose
      A campfire on the beach is extinguished and the smoke of cold ashes rises in my nostrils. The smell of seaweed and seaweed mixes with the scent of dark chocolate. In the background, vanilla and citrus flavors, nutmeg and coffee notes slightly swirl.
    • Taste
      Strong campfire smoke is accompanied by a light sweetness. Tropical fruits, pineapple, oranges and a slightly peppery spiciness complete the taste.
    • Finish
      The smoke remains present for a long time and is accompanied by sweetness, a trace of salt and mineral notes.

    Not my Kilchoman this time

    too metallic finish for me. Either too long in the cask or simply a bad cask... Much better options out there for me!
