Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Rocky

    Nose: Red-fruit rich (strawberry and raspberry), with a hint of peat in the background.

    Palate: Warming yet surprisingly elegant for a whisky at 55% abv. The red-fruit notes from the nose are more intense, with red cherry appearing. Again, the peat smoke is very much in the background.

    Finish: Medium in length with strawberry and the light peat smoke joined by milk chocolate.

    Comment: If I’d tasted this blind, I would have said it was both older and lower in alcohol. For me, Kilchoman have bottled this at the right time – matured for much longer, the wood influence would have started to become overpowering. A stunning (and rare) example of port-matured peated whisky.

  • Producer's Notes

    The Port Cask Matured has a mahogany colour with a touch of ruby.

    The nose is powerful with lemon and citrus notes and the palate has smoke right away along with sweet, nutty milk chocolate character.

    There is a heavy textured finish which drifts away to dry smoke with oakiness.
