Andrew's Tasting Note
Nose: creamy, decadent and briny with a whiff of smoke from the coals of a smouldering beach fire; classic Kilchoman fresh lemon, goat cheese and Old English Butterscotch; smoked mussels and pan seared scallops.
Palate: big, sweet, oily and malty; sweet vanilla and butterscotch morph into tendrils of vanilla, chewy malt and tarry-medicinal-peat; more lemon and goat cheese, firm toasted oak, fennel and Dutch licorice; underneath it all a thick layer of ripe orchard fruits.
Finish: bold, long and rich yet smooth and so so salty: more Dutch licorice, juicy malt and tarry-peat; the smouldering beach fire returns with some sweet vanilla, lemon and orchard fruit.
Comment: we are honoured that Anthony Wills was willing to share one of these precious early vintage Kilchomans will us; bottled just days past its 10th birthday!
Evan's Tasting Note
Nose: Like you decided to hang a bunch of Bounce (TM) dryer sheets from the rafters of your barn, just to freshen the air and get rid of those still lingering notes of hay, leather, and horse hair. When that didn't entirely work so instead of cleaning it all up you set the whole thing on fire. Smoke, peat and dryer sheets. Barbecued prawns, hay, new leather, lime zest, elderflowers honeydew melon and coffee/cappuccino notes.
Palate: Sweet with salt and lemon, Fisherman's Friend lozenges, oatcakes with honey, baked apples, mocha mousse, dark chocolate and light roast coffee.
Finish: Smokey and earthy with more honeydew as well as toasted almonds. Becomes creamy on the finish.
Comment: A big and bold Kilchoman with lots of complexity. It is great to see the distillery's whisky hit the decade-old milestone!
