The brand new Kilchoman is now in stock and will be available to try during The Autumn Speyside Festival 2010.
This release is from 100% Bourbon casks. By far the most refined release so far. In no way is this a hard hitting 3 year old from Islay but that's what it is. It's much better behaved than that and a real pleasure to drink,
Nose: A pleasing balance of sweet ash and some tar. Definite notes of pear drops, vanilla essence, candid lemon and rock salt - packs of Starburst on the bonfire.
Taste: Sweet, smoke and spiced fruits in 3 very defined waves.
Finish: Quite dry. Peat smoke, cloves and hot chills spices which last for a long time.
