Kilchoman 100% Islay #7

It's the seventh release in Kilchoman's excellent 100% Islay series. These whiskies are produced completely on Islay, with barley grown, harvested, malted, distilled and matured at the distillery! The barley is also slightly less peated than the barley which goes into their other releases. For the seventh release, they've used whisky distilled in 2010 and matured in a combination of fresh and refill ex-Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels until 2017.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Banana fritters with floral notes developing underneath. Toasted sugar and a hint of malty chocolate.

Palate Honey'd and sweet at first, though notes of smoked barley blossoms soon after. A kick of cooking spice on the mid-palate.

Finish Drying cacao joined by salted butter melting on crumpets.

Reviews for Kilchoman 100% Islay - 7th Edition
Good malt but too much smoke aftertaste
Honey and Sweet with barley hints, but needs water to offset the burn. Nice smokey flavour, but unfortunately this lingers on the palate for many hours afterwards, and for me was excessive.

To date this is the most I've spent on a single bottle of whisky. Despite the price I wouldn't rate it as a high as Loch Gorm. It seems to be all fire and little flavour. Definitely one that requires a little drop of water to remove that burn and bring out some of the smokiness

Not great
My first bottle and to be honest not a convert, too much burn on first sip, needs to be a little sweeter almost fruitier too add balance.....not for me.
