.kilchoman – win single cask bottling

61,7% abv, €85, single malt, non-chill filtered, natural color, cask strength, single cask

Nose: sweet, smoke, peat, dried fruits, raisins, fresh, eucalyptus
Palate: unexpectedly gentle at first, then spicy, jalapeño peppers, sweet, dried fruits, barbecue smoke, bacon
Finish: strong, smoke, barbecue, roasted meat – closed to being burned, iron
Mark: +++++

Conclusion: I like it, although it is a bit too full of smoke and barbecue for my taste at this moment (summertime). Too bad the sample is depleted, since I would like to have another go at it in winter.

More info: ex-Bourbon cask 192, distilled in 2008, bottled on april 29, 2013, selected by Hans & Marcel Bol for Whisky Import Nederland. Tasted from a sample of dh17 slijter‘s dramset.
