Distilled in 2007, this whisky enjoyed a maturation in fresh bourbon barrels for 6 years and was subsequently bottled in 2013. We expect this wonderful whisky to be just as well received as the 2006 Vintage was previously.
Nose: Warm vanilla notes and exquisite sparks of citrus and little curls of smoke.
Palate: The citrus continues on the palate, with the vanilla developing into butterscotch sweetness.
Finish: Some traditional Islay peatiness appears for the finish.
Overall: Kilchoman are definitely able to hang out with the big hitters of Islay if this 6 Year Old is anything to go by.

I would say the best Kilchoman so far and serious Ardbeg killer. The nose is absolutely fantastic, the very best of Islay. Uniquely islay is not for exaggeration. The palate opens up with major peat blast, but is also quite fruity and still so balanced and complex. Vintage 2007 is quite dry and dusty (which I like) where as Machir Bay is considerable sweeter and somewhat lighter and less smoky. Just a note, Kilchoman is NOT for easy going saturday drinkers.

A bit disappointig whisky. Kilchoman was very well matured at 3yo but it seems it didnt move much forward in the last 3. Lots of peat with a hint of glueish-new spirit like aromas.

I had the pleasure of stumbling across this distillery some years ago before they were able to sell any of their produce. As soon as I saw it in the shops I snapped it up and have not regretted it. The room is filled with the scent of it as soon as the stopper is pulled, on the tongue it is no less punchy and ends on a beautifully peaty note. I need to get a few other Islays now for direct comparison but I reckon I may have found a new favourite....
