"Mossy peat, smoke, BBQ sweetcorn, honeyed oak and sweet fruit. Deeply flavorful, rich palate culminating in a fine oak-laced finish. Superb."

94 Points, Tried & True - Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2022

"A pale golden dram in the glass, with delicate wisps of apricot, honey, and sweet smoke. Bold, savory smoke opens the palate, broken up by pristine notes of toasted walnut and dried mango, before a long, smooth finish with a hint of white chocolate."

"Smoke, samphire, and Kilchoman’s fleshy core giving echoes of 80s cuisine: scallops and white peaches anyone? Watering shows sea-washed rock, light flowers, and hot sand. The palate is sweet, sour, and smoky, with a chalky edge and a peppery palate, but water releases blossom and a little gunsmoke." - Whisky Advocate
