A mixture of ex-bourbon and sherry port casks the nose gives an initial burst of apple and peach fruits followed by a whisper of peat and nougart. The palate has peach from the nose along with peanut shell, spearmint and a light brine. This has a softer peat presence than usual realeases of Kilchoman. D&M Tasting Notes
Lemon curd on shortbread and sweet, salty smoke hit the nose to start, followed by stone fruit, fresh pears, citrus, and peppermint candies. In the mouth, it's ashy and oily, with oyster shell and cigar; add a few drops of water and suddenly it bursts into Technicolor—blueberries, juicy dark fruits, spiced chocolate, and vivid peppery spice. Explosive on the finish, with powerful notes of bitter chocolate, cinnamon, espresso, and lingering ash. 92 Points Whisky Advocate, Winter 2019
Nose: classic Kilchoman citrus sweetness gives way to red currant jelly and waves of peat smoke and sea spray.
Palate: notes of marmalade are interwoven with tobacco, peat and hints of wine-soaked oak.
Finish: layers of toffee and cocoa with the 48.5% abv meaning the goes on for days. Distillery Notes
