Day 24- Kilchoman Alberta Exclusive Madeira Cask

Happy Christmas Eve to everyone!  Tonight, you will have to make the difficult decision of what dram to leave Santa and the elves.  Well I think you will want to keep the whisky behind door number 24 of the Kensington Wine Market Whisky Advent Calendar for yourself to enjoy….or maybe gift it to me!

Today’s whisky is Kilchoman Alberta Exclusive Madeira Cask Finish. Bottled at 56.2% ABV, this is a wonderfully smoky, wine influenced whisky all the way through.

Nose: Smoky, nutty, robust wine notes of dark fruit and spice.

Palate: Heavy peat smoke with big sweet wine flavours.

Finish: Long, sweet and spicy, burnt wine barrel staves and wine-dipped cigars.

Rating: 9.0/10

I recommend sitting down beside the fire with this dram tonight once all the hustling and bustling is done and over with.  However you enjoy it… I hope it’s a very Merry Malt moment!  Get a good night sleep and we’ll see you all tomorrow for the final day!  Cheers!
