Sorry, I’ve been lazy the last couple of weeks but I’ll be back soon!

Kilchoman | Feis Ile 2017 – 100% Islay From Bottle to Barley |58 % | Bourbon Barrel 324/2008 and Sherry Butt 433/2009 |
Info: The 2017 Edition of Kilchoman’s festival bottling is a marriage of two 100% Islay Casks, one Bourbon Barrel of almost 9 years (July 2008 – May 2017) and a 7.5 year old Sherry Butt (October 2009 – May 2017) which resulted in 877 bottles. I drank number 138. Well, a small part of it.
Situation: At the Ballygrant Inn on Islay, put that on your bucket list as well. Say I send you.
Nose: Sulphur, BBQ spices, honey, dry wood fire smoke, bacon, chocolate, red berries, really biting alcohol on the nose,
Taste: Neutral entry, salty peat, honey sweetnee, quite malty, quite spicy alcohol, some red fruits and chocolate but the bourbon cask dominates the rest,
Finish: Salty, creamy honey mouthfeel, ashy smoke and milk chocolate,
Conclusion: The 100% shines through pretty well and the bourbon cask dominates the Sherry Butt, so all the things I like a wee bit less about Kilchos, still a pretty nice dram but I prefer others!
