Kilchoman | 100% Islay Cask Vatting | two fresh Bourbon Barrels (?17 & 538 2008) | 8 Years Old (16.10.2008 – 25.05.2017) | 56.8% |
Info: This bottling is only available in the Distillery Shop, it’s a vatting of two eight year old 100% Islay Bourbon Casks.
Setting: During a tasting after the Distillery Tour, Nicole chose this to be her special Guide’s dram of the tasting!
Nose: Ozone, salt, malty but a bit bitter or tart, big farm-y hay and some citrus fruits. Water brings out lots of tropical fruity notes!
Taste: Very sweet and malty entry, it then stays very malty, very reminiscent of the new make we tasted before, citrus fruits, vanilla, a bit buttery as well, a bit of peat and smoke, again water makes this much more fruity
Finish: intense and powerful, salt, chocolate, very dark Mokka, BBQ spices, some light smoke, slightly oily mouthfeel
