Kilchoman Oloroso 2009 (Single Cask 422)

Distillery: Kilchoman
Bottled: 2015, Distilled: 2009
ABV: 59.2%
Cask: Oloroso Sherry Casks
More Info: WhiskyBase

Here’s the sixth and final dram from the Manchester Whisky Club’s tasting with Kilchoman, the Single Cask Oloroso 2009.

Nose: Sesame seed, caramel wafers, coal tar, plasticine, marzipan, plum sauce.

Palate: Sweet and syrupy with tangy cough drops, cola, orange zest, and tingly sour smoke.

Finish: Long and smoky with plenty of earth and tar. Reminiscent of Ardbeg.

Staggeringly good for a 5 year old. This one really made the night for a lot of the club members. Wow!

This cask (422) will be bottled and released in Belgium but we have it on good authority there’s a similar release due for the UK market. Here’s hoping…
