This is a single cask of Kilchoman that is one of their oldest: 10 years old. It was matured in an Oloroso sherry butt
Toffee, caramel, rich currant and blackberry. Yeasty, fresh baked bread. Brine, light ethanol, soapstone and pepper.
Sweet, loaded with honey and raspberry, as well as some blackberry. Ashy, woody smoke, lots of minerality.
Long, rich, but hot. Lots of charcoal, berries, currants and smoldering wood.
This was also really nice, but the nose continued the trend of being the best part. I had hoped for more syrupy sherry characteristics to blend with the ashy structure, but no dice. That said, this was still very enjoyable, and a pleasure to drink through.
