Islay

Kilchoman Distillery

Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Very peaty indeed. Color of very light yellow. Fruit note like citrus is hidden under the mighty peat note. Some caramel note surfaces afterwards also. It is a bit off balances as the peaty note is run of the show here. But after a few rounds, you start to appreciate her beauty. — 11 days ago

Kilchoman Distillery

Machir Bay Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

An old bottle, so mellowed slightly. Sweet, soft, salty, with a wonderful warm, richness underneath. A pale golden colour. Light peat on the nose, but overpowered by a cherry-sweet medicinal scent with a honeyed base to it. Reminds me of the smell of a sweetsmoke fire in the distance on a cold beach on a grey day. And tobacco - cigar tobacco. And banana! Marvellous! — a month ago

5 Year Old Octomore Islay Barley Single Malt Scotch

PPM 169. When opened, can smell the peat five feet away. When shoving glass right beneath nose, aroma is (surprisingly) apricots and fruit. In mouth is like massive barbecue woodsmoke attack. Long lingering notes of bourbon cask, dying pitfire embers. Most assertive Islay I have tasted. — a month ago
