Kilchoman Cask Strength 2nd Edition Quarter Casks

Kilchoman | Original Cask Strength 2nd Edition | Bourbon Quartercasks | 6 Years old | 56.9% | NCF & NCA

Situation: Tasting at the distillery, after this

Nose: Ozone, tart fruits, pine nuts, woody, a bit of bitter peat and clear smoke,

Taste: Sweet malty entry, creamy mouthfeel but it turns quite aggressive then, spicy wood, fruity, vanilla, peat, malt, vanilla, smoke, chocolate

Finish: Dry spicy smoke! Salty, long and intense, a bit of young harshness on the finish, dark chocolate and mokka

Conclusion: I’m not a huge fan of quarter cask maturation, (at least for me) it brings some harshness to this dram and in combination with the six year old spirit makes this one quite aggressive, still it’s a nice dram but there are better ones for me

Score: B or 84/100
