The nose of this is peat and white wine with some dried fruits. The palate is a nice smoky campfire that tastes like smoked meat and fruit. The finish is medium and adds a decent ballance to the expression. I like this bottle but it’s far inferior to some other expressions by Kilchoman. To much white wine and not enough complexity for me.

The nose has a lot of peat, tar, dark chocolate, and pepper. On the palate there is seaweed, currant, cake bread, and a serious amount of peat. The finish is very long, lots of iodine/smoke and more dark chocolate. I like this expression a lot. However, I do like the Uigeadail slightly better as I feel like it is slightly more ballanced.
