Kilchoman | Original Cask Strength 1st Edition | Bourbon Casks | 59.2% | NCF & NCA
Situation: After a nice day with my family in a holiday resort, watching /u/kdz13 Eagels looking really good against the Cards
Nose: Nice, Bacon, ashy smoke, chocolate, sweet peat, quite malty, old leather, salty.
Taste: chocolate-y entry, creamy mouthfeel, sweet peat, lots of bbq spices, salty, smoldering fire kind of smoke, some coconut,
Finish: long, salty, sweet malt, slightly bitter smoke, dark chocolate and mokka notes at the end, quite drying as well
Conclusion: I tend to like Kilchoman better when it’s Sherry or alike mature, but this is a good chocolate-y, full bbq-spices Bourbon Cask matured Islay
Score: 87/100 B
