Kilchoman Feis Ile 2014

The smallest and youngest of distilleries on Islay (that is until next year, when Gartbreck distillery is up and working)  did also produce a festival bottling this year, and as young as their whiskies are (oldest to date was 6 yo), they are crackers.
The festival bottling  was matured for around 5 years, initially in first-fill bourbon casks before spending a …

It’s Kilchoman day today at Feis Ile on Islay, and no better way to celebrate it from afar (sadly,but next year there is hope!) than drinking the latest offering from that excellent little distillery that you got to love. Time flies, and it seems that only yesterday i reviewed the 3rd edition of this expression. Let’s see how this one …

Tasting Kilchoman Loch Gorm batch #2

It’s Feis Ile week, and I know Kilchoman day is not until Thursday, but I feel like posting this review today, so that’s that. For some reason never tasted the first batch of Loch Gorm, so I can’t really compare the two batches (anyone got a wee sample for batch #1? send it over to WI towers, and you shall …

Kilchoman’s first foray into the Travel Retail market : The ‘Coull Point’

It was only a matter of time until this happened, and does not really come at a surprise to anyone who’s been monitoring the whisky scene, A NAS for the travel retail. There you have it, Kilchoman also wants in, and the TR market has its own rules, basically, cheap NAS at higher prices due to the price pressure of …

Kilchoman 5 Year Old 2008 – Single Cask (Master of Malt)

Can’t go wrong with a young peaty Kilchoman , can you? Well, you can’t really, but I’ve had some less interesting single cask Kilchoman (and one OB I own) which were not as good, I’ve also had a cracking 4 year old single cask Indie, so I was hoping this one was going to be a cracker, and it damn …

After the brilliant 100% Islay, and Machir Bay editions(both reviewed on the blog). This is a vatting of 100% …

Kilchoman Machir Bay 2013 edition

Time for some more Kilchoman fun this time the 2013 edition of the Machir Bay. It’s a bit different than the 100% Islay (it’s not 100% Islay duh!) in cask composition : bine a vatting of five year old bourbon-matured whisky, and four year old bourbon-matured and Oloroso-finished malt, which should  give it a sweeter fruitier profile. It’s bottled at …

Kilchoman 100% Islay 3rd edition , 2013

This is the latest release in the 100% Islay range, which is a quite unique Islay peated malt as it is the only Single Malt in Scotland where every stage of the whisky making process, from the barley grown in the surrounding fields to the malting, distillation, maturation and bottling, takes place at the distillery, as it should be in …
