Member Reviews and Ratings of Kilchoman 100% Islay
Absolutely tasted the mint, even 10 minutes after sampling it. I think that the sweetness, combined with the mint, allowed me to rate it a 7. This is purely for my own personal tastes, as I like to get kicked in the face by a horse that has just ran through a peaty bog; a smidgen too sweet for my liking.
This whisky is pretty good. The peat and smoke flavors are fairly dominant.
Really enjoyed this whisky. Peaty and smooth.
Good peat and smoke flavors, with just enough bite. Would definitely have again
Very smooth and not overly peaty. Easy to drink
Exceptionally peaty and smokey. Still a good Scotch but too much for me.
Not sweet, nor spicey. More of a flat peaty flavor. More peat than smoke or phenol. I'm glad I tried it, but I'll try something new next time.
So smokey. So good
Smoky peated vanilla quickly giving to a long, peaty spice middle, with a smoky vanilla end that dies quickly. Overall a flavor pattern that I’m starting to be the default of Scotch.
Just not a huge fan of the peaty smoky scotch
The chocolate in the aroma as well as added spice in the flavor make this a different twist on an Islay malt. I did add a cube of ice (which I rarely do with Scotch) and that helped bring out the slightly herbal flavor as well. You can tell it's young, but there is still depth to it.
Honestly, peat and smoke is not my flavor combination. So this sucked for me. The combination of the peat and smoke and whatever after taste there may have been, it tasted earthy (which I'm being polite and not using the word dirt but I should)
I thought this was great. Nice flavor and very smooth. Very easy to drink and enjoy
Absolutely loved it. Everything an Islay should be. Two thumbs way up!
Very subtle aroma that leaves one wanting to taste. Comes on a bit strong but settles to let the peat and other flavors through. Surprisingly no flavors stood out to me other than a light sweet finish.
Strong smoke and peat. Nice finish that stays in the mouth.
Smoke and peat on the nose and pallet, but finishes into delicious notes of fruit. Currently my favorite.
I personally didn't like it, but my friend loved it.
If you like smoke and peat - you'll love this one.
Harsh due to the imbalance of peat and other flavors and has an absinthe quality to it. Redeeming long finish.
Peaty/smoky with vanilla. Smooth mouth feel.
I'm not a big scotch or peat guy. But this has a nice heavy smoke to it and is very smooth. Finishes sweet, I like it. It's on my wish list!
I like it. I drink it regularly. But I like the Sanaig more. This one is a little more earthy and you can taste the barley more. It's a young scotch, and it tastes fresh and eager to overwhelm the senses. Overall, a very enjoyable scotch.
Add other Kilchoman, it's really peat and Smokey. A bit more complex than the brand's other varietal though. I can taste a bit citrus after the smoke resides. Good alternative to Glenfidich.
Terrible, taste like throat spray
As far as the Islays go, this is middle of the road for me. Nice and smokey and peaty, but the finish loses me quite a bit.
I have come to the conclusion that I am personally no fan of Peat in any way possible. With that being said, this a very smooth and crisp smoke and floral hinted drink.
Not a fan of Peaty Scotch
I really enjoy the smoky flavor, a very unique and flavorful Scotch. I don't believe that I have ever tasted anything quite so unique. Definitely will become part of my bar.
Islay Scotches are my thing. This one is no exception. I like it a lot and will add it to my list of Islays.
This is some of the best scotch I have had yet, absolutely love it
Not my taste at all. Too sharp.
Ech. The peat ruins this beyond repair. Like cherry cough syrup mixed with iodine.
If you're an Islayphile like me, this 100% Islay is fantastic. And if you're an environmentalist like me, you love the fact that this expression is straight barley to bottle. Great job, Kilchoman!
I liked but the smoke flavor was a little to much for me.
A very smooth, high alcohol scotch, the flavor profile is way too peaty for my taste. But there is no question that this is a quality scotch. If the depth of flavor was a little deeper and not governed by peat and smoke from start to finish, this could be a great glass to pair with a sweet and savory meal.
Highland smooth with a really nice dose of Islay smoke.
