Nose: Barley, honey, peat. A real golden dram. Beautifully balanced, it becomes more buttery, with both lemon sherbets and gummy bears as well as perfectly seasoned popcorn. Dried apricot and rosemary roast potatoes develop whilst water unlocks a little more maritime seaweed.
Palate: Super sweet, warm barley with vanilla and crème brûlée. Peat is ever-present without taking over.
Finish: Less buttery but popcorn is there again alongside more golden barley. Subtle peat lingers with just a hint of freshly ground black pepper.
Overall: This is a cracking little independent Kilchoman. A golden, peaty treat!
