Tasting note

  • Appearance : Olive verte.
  • Nose : Précis, profond. Les cendres jaillissent du verre. L’agave et le citron confit aussi. La fumée vient derrière et la tourbe est sèche. Le décor est planté, la mer est à proximité, le vent balaie les champs d’orge. Il devient laiteux et fruité (pomme, poire).
  • Palate : Fine, racée. Elle file comme poussée par un vent appuyé. La scène est bucolique, empyreumatique et aromatique (sauge, verveine). Un baume salvateur se diffuse dans chacune des papilles. La tourbe occupe la même place au fond de la classe.
  • Overall : Les fruits d’automne abondent : noix fraîche, pomme, coing, châtaigne, poire. La racine de gentiane nous ramène à ses origines îliennes (sel, embruns). Plus huileuse, la tourbe s’est rapprochée. La rétro olfaction est fraîche et anisée.
The brand

The brand

The first distillery built on the Isle of Islay for over a century, Kilchoman celebrated its third birthday in September 2009, with its new spirit finally reaching the age required for it to be legally called a single malt. Built using the model of a “farmhouse-distillery”, Kilchoman makes a point of distilling its new spirit from barley grown on its own land. Some 100 tonnes are harvested and malted at the distillery, providing 30% of their needs. The rest comes from the maltings at Port Ellen. Its first barrel of new make spirit was filled in 2005.
