At 7 Years Old I believe this is the longest aged Kilchoman to date. I've tried most of their younger, earlier releases just out of interest to see how it develops. My only regret is not getting a sample of the New Make Spirit when I had the chance many years ago.

Nose is zesty, lemony, salty and sharp. Minerals and soft peat seep through with further citrus notes of oranges. After time some sherbet and vanilla appears.

Palate is of singed oranges, salty peat and becomes sweeter the longer it stays in the glass. Lemon and with a hint of mint, (this is not nearly as prominent as it was in the younger releases). Slight hint of creamy vanilla after time.

It finishes fairly bitter-sweet, dry and long lasting.

I've been impressed by how much complexity Kilchoman get into their young whiskies and this is no exception. If this is how good a 7 YO is, I cannot wait for an 18YO release sometime around 2025!
