Halò Single Malt Mates,
Kilchoman is an Islay distillery that sounds Japanese to me but isn’t. It is Islayese.
Here is the expression.
2011 Single Sherry Cask Royal Mile Whiskies Exclusive 57.2% 70cl
Bottle Size 70cl
Alc. Volume 57.2%
Delight! That’s a great word to express how we feel about this exclusive single cask of Kilchoman. It has been matured in a sole sherry butt before being bottled at natural cask strength. A rich, full and surprisingly fruity dram. A rare whisky that will delight fans of peat and sherry influence.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Rich spices, cinnamon with peat smoke, cooked fruits and citrus.
Palate: Peat smoke, sweet toffee, pears, dried fruits and dark chocolate.
Finish: The finish is long and clean with layers of sherry sweetness and rich smoke.
This is a cask strength single cask Islay. I believe that this will be liked by most even if you don’t like peat.
I have found that if you don’t like a whisky at first, try something you do like and then go back to it…
Inspiring bold John Barleycorn!
What dangers thou canst make us scorn!
Wi’tippeny, we Fear nae evil;
Wi’usquabae, we’ll face the devil!
Lift ’em high and drain ’em dry
To the guy who says, “My turn to buy.”
A h-uile la sona dhuibh‘s gun la idir dona dhuibh!
May all your days be happy ones!
