Kilchoman 7, 2013-2021, Tequila Cask 736/2013, 55.7% – OB for The Nectar

This Kilchoman finished, not matured, in a Tequila cask is one of the many bottlings for The Nectar‘s 15th anniversary. Where I thought The Nectar was a bottler, they are also a sizeable importer for Belgium, focusing on all kinds … Continue reading

The last leg of the Blind Tasting Competition, or maybe the last tripod, since there’s another three reviews below. In this batch there are two bottlings I had before, but only one of them I recognized. That made up for … Continue reading

Kilchoman 12, 2006-2019, 50.8% – OB for 12Barrels

Me and Kilchoman don’t match. There’s no good reason for that, but it’s just the case. It’s weird, since I’ve looked back and found a dozen or so reviews of Kilchoman on my blog. All of them (except for that … Continue reading

Kilchoman Inaugural Release, 2009, 3yo, 46%
