  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    • Nose

      Enticing aromas of wood smoke, barley and lemon oil. Clean and fruity, with richness in the form of vanilla custard and toffee.

    • Palate

      Whistle-clean, this is alive with zesty citrus fruit and aromatic peat with the balancing sweetness of vanilla fudge along with notes of apple and pear and a sprinkling of black pepper.

    • Finish

      The rich wood smoke is well balanced by the clean citrus notes.

    • Comment

      Lip smacking and refreshing, this is a delicious Islay single malt that is not only clean and fruity, but has the classic Islay peat character. A great introduction to Islay whisky.

    A wonderful offering from a young new distillery. A perfect balance of peat, sweet and zesty citrus. Kilchoman seems to be doing things right.

    Complex, elaborate, strong yet elegant Islay type wisky. Definitely one of my very favourites in this sector !...

    excellent whisky, would've rated it 4,5 stars if i could..

    Very good. Layered. Starting with a striking smoke which is reducing as the grain spirit takes more space on the palate. It shows little oak though and is a pretty nervous dram. Slight more time in the wood would perhaps bring another star to it.

    Lovely whisky - surprisingly refreshing with a beautiful, smoky nose.
