Kilchoman aged in a sherry cask.
Theres brine and peat, its a sweet peat with nice tires and vegetation but no bandaids. Mmmmm. Very mild hint of the sherry sweet and some vanilla. Mostly smoke though.
For a sherry casked dram, there isnt nearly as much as I was expecting. Mostly smoke and peat, with some cinnamon, vanilla and hay with a mild fringe of sherry here and there. I think this is due to the relative youth of the spirit.
Medium and a bit sweeter than the palate would have made me think was coming. Still mostly smoke and hay, but theres some brine sticking around here too. Its interesting and playful.
I like this. I don't love it - but if it sat in a PX or Olo barrel for a few more years, we might have a whole new beast on our hands. I probably wouldn't pick up a full bottle yet but I'm heavily invested in trying future years expressions. I like Kilchoman and what they're doing and I'm looking forward to trying more of their offerings
