Kilchoman Original Cask Strength
Kilchoman is still the youngest distillery on Islay and one of the most exciting ones these days in my opinion. This release comes from a total of 35 casks distilled in 2009. So with only 9000 bottles, no chill-filtration and bottled at full cask strength, 59,2% this must be a very interesting whisky.
A lovely peaked scent that makes you dream away to a great bonfire by the beach, but with some lovely sweet hints too.
It’s a powerful peated dram with a growing character that’s about to be a senior instead of a junior. Some lovely raw notes fighting with the sweet ones. Almost like a big war between all the flavours in your mouth.
Long with lovely smoke that goes on like forever.
This young one is about to get mature.It surprises you from expression to expressions and haven’t been disappointed yet. Imagine like 20 years from now, where will Kilchoman be then ? I don’t know for sure but I really want to follow the journey.
