    For my palate, this is a fabulous dram. I only wish I had another bottle; I will mourn this when done. It has a little bit of salty sweet along with some spices and an unmistakable medical/iodine smoke.

      At first I got slammed with cinnamon, but then that was followed by sea air, and then smoke. Then a hint of fruit teased until it finally developed into pineapple and maybe even mango.
    • Taste

      Some alcohol heat at first, then the cinnamon from the nose joins along with ginger and smoky iodine. The fruits tease in the background, peaking occasionally from the cloud of damp driftwood smoke. Medium mouthfeel.
    • Finish

      The smoky iodine lingers for a while and then alternates with the dessert notes of cinnamon with tropical fruit sprinkled with sugar crystals.

    Never expected a Kilchoman to be this tropical: all about  mango's, pinneapple, some bananas.

    A great vatting of 2 fresh bourbon barrels.
