Kilchoman Sherry Cask

Country: Scotland
Region: Islay
Type: Single Malt
Bottler: Distiller
ABV: 46%
Score: 92 points

The first Kilchoman expression exclusively matured in sherry casks, with a smoky nose and soft touches of dried orange peel, ginger, and honey. The smoke is more wood than peat, but well-balanced. The taste has a creamy mouthfeel with subtle smokiness and nice spices, including cinnamon, allspice, and vanilla balanced against fruity touches of orange peel and baked apples. The finish is complex with a good balance of subtle sweetness and lingering spices. A few drops of water gives the flavors a nice boost.
