A rare peat bomb made exclusively for the South Arfican market, Kilchoman PX cask finish will invigorate any peat head’s palate – botlled at cask strength, non-chillfiltered and no colouring added. Matured in ex-bourbon barrels and finished off in sweet Pedro Xeminez sherry casks, this Islay single malt packs a smack of flavour!
Nose: Surprisingly lighthearted, I was expecting a darker sweet-smoky challenge. There’s complex fruit notes of apple cider, tangerine juice, brandied cherriesâ€¦maybe raisins, too.
Palate: Hints of fruit-infused chocolate and a little marzipan make a brief appearance before being submerged by the peat and smoke. Along with some hot cinnamon, ground black pepper and raw ginger.
