Review #1010 | Scotch Review #341 – Kilchoman 10yr Single Cask Oloroso Matured

The Schtick: This is a single cask of Kilchoman that is one of their oldest: 10 years old. It was matured in an Oloroso sherry butt


Distiller: Kilchoman

Bottler: Kilchoman

ABV: 55.6% ABV

Age: 10 Years

Cask Filled: December 13th, 2007

Bottled: August 27th, 2018

Cask: #426|2007


Nose: Toffee, caramel, rich currant and blackberry. Yeasty, fresh baked bread. Brine, light ethanol, soapstone and pepper.

Taste: Sweet, loaded with honey and raspberry, as well as some blackberry. Ashy, woody smoke, lots of minerality.

Finish: Long, rich, but hot. Lots of charcoal, berries, currants and smoldering wood.

Overall: This was also really nice, but the nose continued the trend of being the best part. I had hoped for more syrupy sherry characteristics to blend with the ashy structure, but no dice. That said, this was still very enjoyable, and a pleasure to drink through.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 6
