Kilchoman 14 year old Impex Cask Evolution (Cask No. 18/2006), 53%

Price: $220 Issue: Fall 2020 Reviewer: Susannah Skiver Barton

Sweet, smoky, meaty peat aromas mingle with vanilla saltwater taffy, blueberry, dried
ginger, and bright bubble gum. The palate is consistent, juxtaposing fruity
spirit—orange, lemon, strawberry, blueberry—with savory peat smoke. Vanilla, nuts,
black pepper, cinnamon, and well-integrated oak are also at play. The finish lingers
with the sweet-savory pleasure of a cigar, nutty oak, spice, and peat. Does well with
water, showing excellent development. (208 bottles)
