Kilchoman Inaugural Release 3 Year Old

Kilchoman's Machir Bay is the distillery's lovely and subtle core expression. The nose offers strong peat and yeasty biscuit notes, followed by an intense green apple sweetness that reminded me of those scented Strawberry Shortcake dolls of the 1980s. (Indeed, after conducting a bit of internet research, I discovered there was an apple-based character named Apple Dumplin', so we'll go with that.)

Sweet flavors dominate the palate, soft and substantial, like rich angel food cake with sugary icing. The finish is long and spicy-sweet with an afterburn of cinnamon red-hots.

I bought this bottle at Spirits in the Sky in Leuven, Belgium. I was tasting whiskies with my father when I noticed a small stall with only 2 whiskies, Kilchoman Inaugural and Kilchoman new spirit. Tasted the new spirit first, the inaugural afterwards, bought a bottle right away :)

alright, the notes!

nose: smoke, peat, a small hint of citrus fruit, quite tickly (:))

mouth: quite sweet at first, caramel?, stays a bit the same, not very complex ...

finish: very strong finish, wet wood, lingering sensation, after a while pepper and ashes!

Conclusion: I really(!) like this whisky. Yes it's young, no it's not complex, yes I've had better, but damn it's good for a 3 yr old :) Really promising for future releases (haven't tasted the Autumn release yet, hope to do so in 2 weeks :)).



I've been to the whisky in the sky festival in Leuven Belgium.

A new whisky to taste. Kilchoman is a new distillery on Islay that has just released A 3 year old whisky. It is a smooth tasting whisky, and like most Islays very smoky. I am looking forward to a 10 year old. This whisky tastes a bit young but has a great future.

I was lucky enough to taste this at the Whisky Show in London this weekend. Considering it's age, it's an outstanding whisky - as you say, smooth, smokey and definitely tastes a lot older than it's three years. Can't wait for later releases!!
