Top reviews for Kilchoman U.S. Small Batch Limited Edition:

— Great on the nose, PEATY from start to finish with hints of sweet and smoke. Favorite Kilchoman by far.

— If you love smoke and peat, you're in luck. Pours very dark, enjoyed the dram.

— Flaviar Advent sampler day 20. I'm a fan of Islay Scotches and was eager to try this one. It's good, not great. Lots of peat, smoky, but smooth. Unfortunately, I'm not picking up a lot of other flavors or aromas. They seem to be masked by the peat. A minor disappointment.

Frank,
(Advent 2020, #20) In the glass it looked like a rose wine. The nose I get is peaty and smoky. Flavor again is that smoky peaty, it's a bit different and almost a little odd to me. Not to my liking.

If you love smoke and peat, you're in luck. Pours very dark, enjoyed the dram.

Matthew,
Not a huge fan of peat overall, but this tastes like Kilchoman Sanaig aged in a Port wine barrel. Would probably go great with a cigar, if that's your thing. Hints of non-peat smoke and cocoa add a little sweetness, but the peat and wine are pretty overpowering.

Todd,
Pours a rose color. Smells are not great. Palate a little better. Not my thing.

Lovely Islay expression.
 
Derek
Derek,
Beautiful and unique clay-red color, first of all. The nose was a mix of smoke, peat, tobacco, and port. Same profile on the palate, with a very subtle tone of toffee and chocolate on the finish. Any of those flavors could easily have overwhelmed the others, but it was remarkably well-balanced in the end. Definitely a distinct and somewhat unexpected experience for an Islay. I’d be tempted to pick up a bottle if it was available and the price was right.

Very interesting. I like it. Has a tobacco and port wine flavor I’m not used to in and Islay. Kind of disappointed that it wasn’t available after tasting in the advent calendar.

Vincent,
Advent Day 20 - Very peaty nose with hints of sweetness. Palate was dominated by tobacco smoke, which lingered into the finish.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Peaty and smoky and not much else.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
This one surprised me. I initially groaned at getting *another* peated scotch; I was hoping to taste more of the world from a "whiskies of the world calendar. The color was intriguing though. I got port on the nose right off, along with distant smoke and sea. Like sitting around a fire with a glass of wine on the beach. A second sniff revealed an underlying berry sweetness, like currants. Tobacco smoke on the first sip (reminded me of when I smoked unfiltered cigarettes) balanced nicely with a fairly aggressive sweetness and cocoa notes. A pleasantly long tail, with smoke and a sweet oakiness. Of course it turns out this is a limited release, so getting a bottle might prove difficult, but this is a whisky I would be glad to have on my shelf.

You took the words right out of my mouth. I could not have said it better! Cheers!

James,
Interesting whisky. Just looking at the ruby color piqued my interest. Nose is distinctively Islay, strong peat & smoke with some sweetness lingering in the background. The smell is more interesting than the taste, which dominated by Peat & Smoke with just a touch of sweetness at the end. 2020 advent day 20
 
Matt
Matt,
sweet, fruity. maybe a note of sea air in the finish. a bit of smoke.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Advent 2020 #20 - the peat is strong with this one. Other hints of flavors come out here and there then overpowered by the peat/smoke.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Peaty, but I’ve had stronger. Butter on the nose, then smoke. Clean on the pallet & on the finish.

Alphonso,
Great on the nose, PEATY from start to finish with hints of sweet and smoke. Favorite Kilchoman by far.
 
Antti
Antti,
It is an outstanding, elegant, Single Malt Scotch Whisky that has an aromatic birth; while an elegant life leads to a balanced death of medium length with hints of port, toffee & cocoa.
 
Dave
Dave,
Favorite of the three.

Michael,
There is nothing to this scotch that really stands out except that higher ABV than usual. If you want consistency, an Ardbeg 10 year will offer that at a lower price.
