With the first Port wine release in 2014, Kilchoman began a series of annual limited wine barrel releases. Unlike its successors (Madeira, Sauternes), it had not yet been prepared by a club release the previous year.


Colour: red-brown

Nose: medium peaty smoke notes which are quickly overlaid by fruity sweetness (red fruits, berries), wine tones

Taste: lots of red fruit, vinous sweetness, oily mouthfeel, but then also a rather distinctly typical Kilchoman peat smoke dryness

Finish: long, first sweet, then long lasting dryness, slightly astringent

Conclusion: absolutely delicious, one of the best Kilchoman releases on the market (HPN 2014)
