This is a Kilchoman release that is matured in an 80/20 ratio of Oloroso wine casks and ex-Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels. It is bottled at 46% abv without filtering or coloring and is named after one of the ricky inlets found north of Kilchomans distillery.
Buttered popcorn, sweet sherry and stewed fruits. Honey and cream, lightly ashy.
Ash, soap stone and stewed fruits. Campfire, burning wood. Medium mouth feel with light heat.
Medium length, ashy and fruity. Minerality is strong here.
While the sherry was noticeable in the palate, I would have liked some more. Overall, I like this a bit more than Machir and thought this was well done.
