Kilchoman 2006 Refill Bourbon Barrel

Colour: Pale gold.

Nose: Creamy, smoky, coal tar with a slight herbal note. Cardamom, blast of Elastoplast - like Germolene with the volume turned down. Like a delicate version of Ardbeg Uigeadail. With water the herbal note becomes more prominent and floral, and less sooty and tarry.

Taste: Smooth, mellow, sweet and sooty. Very creamy and mouth watering. Lemongrass and liquorice. With water it becomes much smoother and creamier. Less sooty, but more soot.

Finish: Burnt sticks neat, liquorice and treacle with water.

With water orange citrusy notes emerge with more smoke and cream. There are more farmyard notes (Fresh cow-shite in a lush grass field after a rain shower). Blackjacks and summer fruits (strawberries and raspberries).

Taste: Sweet and very sooty. Molasses, treacle. Hint of orange in the middle. Loses some of the sootiness with water, but gains more orange citrus notes. More mouth watering.
