KILCHOMAN 100% ISLAY 2ND RELEASE - DISTILLERY BOTTLING

More Islay whisky coming up as promised... :-) This time from Kilchoman who has released another 100% Islay - which means everything from barley to bottling has been done on the island.

Again, its a young release - a 3yo - but time one seems more mature than the first release of their 100% Islay...

Let's try this one:

Kilchoman 100% 3yo 2012 Islay 2nd Release, 50%, Distillery bottling

Colour is very pale straw

Nose:
Citrus and pear, young peat, new make and clear and present farmyard note.
Also a greenish notes and burning fresh leaves

Taste:
Perfumy style peat - not Bowmore style, but definitely a very aromatic style. Ash, citrus and fresh spirit...

Not overly expressive but it still performs nicely for a 3yo whisky.

78/100!
