General description

Ein grundsolider ehrlicher Whisky. Keine Färbung, keine Kaltfiltruerung, kein unnätiges Marketing-Blabla. Einfach ein super-gradliniges Torfmonster!

Kein Whisky für jeden Tag aber wenn man mal Lust hat auf die volle Dröhnung Rauch ist er perfekt.

General description

Obvious peat on the nose. Palate is different from Ardbeg or Laphroiag which have more bbq meat complexity. Kilchoman is more honey dripping smoke and smoothness. Not so long in finish but a bit of peppery oak tingles on tongue in the end.

General description

The colour is quite pale. The nose is a little smokey but not alot. The taste is very subtle. Expected alot more peat. Its a very nice islay introduction whisky.

General description

Strong peat for such a young whisky.


Slight smell of peat. Some acidic fruity smell. Lemon or Lime.


The peat hit first then taste of lemon. Also hint of chocolate. Little salty then peat all the way.


Surprisingly long. The smokey taste linger long.
