Nose: Smoked and malty nose with notes of cured ham, oysters with lemon and red wine vinegar, a touch of TCP and citrus zest.
Palate: Oaky and bittersweet with black pepper, toffee apples, dark chocolate, aniseed and warm, spicy peat. Very complex, with a development of star anise.
Finish: Very long and salty with sticking plasters and blackcurrant.
Overall: Not the peatiest of the Kilchomans, but certainly one of the most complex - really very good indeed.
