Kilchoman Spring 2011 Release 3yo Single Malt 46%
Tarry, a touch of rubber, charcoal and hay bales all coated with vanilla, flavoured with pear drops.
Thick and full bodied as the honey and warm spicy pepper hits the tongue, leaving a seaweed, salt and tar coated barley finish. Lingering, this dram is sweet, salty, smoky and sensuous. 88
Kilchoman Inaugural 100% Islay 3yo 1st Fill Bourbon 50%
Smoked vanilla pods, sugar encrusted seaweed, tarry ropes and pear drops.
Viscous and vanilla sweet with a mid palate of pepper ‘n sweet spice leaving a warm wellies finish and lingering sweet brine.
A dash of aqua injects a burst of vanilla pod, the pepper morphing to chilli lemon spice with the warm peat and soft salt lingering on the finish. 90
Kilchoman Single Cask Single Malt Distilled:20/09/07 Bottled:07/09/11 From Bourbon Cask No:244/2006 60.5%
So much like a sweet ale with a hint of new make, new rubber, damp smoking embers, pear drops with menthol and wintergreen.
Intensely, deliciously sweet and unctuous on the palate, then hot spicy pepper with a warm finish of sweet barley and hot tar. 92
Kilchoman Single Cask Single Malt Distilled:15/11/06 Bottled:06/09/11 From Sherry Cask No:323/2006 60.3%
Peach schnapps and new make, greengage and gooseberry with an orange citrus twist as the soft smoke entwines around the fruit.
Taste bud boggling this is intensely sweet honey and vanilla, the orchard fruits impacting, giving way to a hot peppery spice, then soft peat smoke, charred oak and tar.
A supreme malt of the highest order, with the sugary sweet addiction balanced perfectly with the orchard fruits and soft peat. A masterpiece. 95
