Undrinkable, don't get me wrong i love Kilchoman, and really loved the other expressions, but let's be honest , this is just a raw, immature, bad whiskey, taste more like a tequila.
Well-crafted and well-balanced. Peat and smoke complement (but don't overpower) fruit that starts out as an almost-sour lemon but quickly drifts towards sweet lemonade. The finish leaves something to be desired, with none of the balance found in the nose and palate - it's mostly smoke and peat with nothing else of note. This is one of those cases where I'm happy to enjoy someone else's bottle, but given the price point, I'd much rather buy a Springbank.
Awesome stuff. Sweet smoke with candied spice. lively fruitiness and balnced chocolate with vanilla. Kilchoman is just getting more drinkable with every release. And all the previous ones I've tried were all too quaffable.
