Kilchoman 100% Islay

Country: Scotland

Region: Islay

Type: Single Malt

Bottler: Distiller

ABV: 50%

Score: 91 Points

This is a rarity, with barley grown on the distillery’s farm, malted at the distillery, and bottled on site as well. The nose has a good peatiness with excellent phenols, heather and gorse notes, and hints of dried grass and honey. The taste is a good blend of peat and wood smoke, along with a hint of citrus to balance allspice, honey, and black tea notes for an excellent mouthfeel. The finish is smoky and lingering.
