Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Finish The depth of flavour that the cognac casks have provided the Kilchoman spirit is unrivaled; dried fruits and marzipan make way to crystallised ginger, balancing sweet and spice. Lingering peat smoke is lightened with the influence of citrus oil making itself known across the palate.
Tasting Notes from the Producer
Aromas (without water) An opening note of rich apple and pear forms the structure for this release. Herbaceous fresh fruit begins to make its way as the whisky begins to open. Subtle tones of honey and warming spice develop over time. Peat remains delicate on the nose, bringing a dryness to this release.
Flavour The texture provided by a slow distillation and the influence of the cognac oak allows for a buttery texture that continues throughout. Dried lemon and apricot combine with cinnamon and nutmeg that are held together by an influence of toasted oak and sweet peat smoke.
