Tasting Notes

"Kilchoman's 9th Islay Edition has an invitingly restrained peat aroma. The palate is pleasantly briny with subtle notes of treacle, ginger, and chestnut, with a touch of smoke lingering on the finish. It's a nicely balanced dram, using its moderately peated to malts to very good effect."
