Compared to the previous whisky cask finish this one is far better balanced and a good one. Nice and fruity with a hint of barrel and smoke.

HSE Kilchoman finish is a special mix from two great regions, Martinique and Islay. The rum was aged in the tropics for 6 years and then finished for 4 months in whisky barrels. It was distilled in November 2013 and bottled in February 2020 in just 4100 bottles. Overall a quite elegant rum that must be perfect for people loving whisky that wa

Un nez très tourbé se mariant à un fruité qui le sublime ! En bouche la tourbe est toujours très présente mais bien équilibrée ! Moi qui ne suis pas friand des whisky trop tourbe, ici c'est très bien dosé ! De la canelle et du café fruité ! C'est très bon

Intéressant mais très marqué par la tourbe du fût

Je ne suis pas fan de tourbe à la base mais je trouve ce produit très réussi parce que la tourbe est légèrement présente mais pas dominante ce qui rend ce rhum très élégant mais avec un certain caractère.

an der Nase noch etwas an agricole Erinnernd im Geschmack dann vollkommen vom kilchoman cask dominiert. agricole ist quasi nicht mehr wahrnehmbar. schade. für mich zu extrem!

In der Nase wenig Rauch. Am Gaumen aber wie ein flüssiger Aschenbecher. Mir einen Tick zu krass.

Il s’agit donc d’un rhum distillé en 2013 et vieilli durant 5 ans en fûts de chêne et qui a bénéficié d’une finition en fûts de whisky Kilchoman (Single Malt d’Islay) pendant 4-5 mois. Le nez n’est pas trop sur la tourbe. C’est plutôt neutre. Ok le fumé est présent mais pas trop. Par contre en bouche les notes tourbées caractéristiques des whiskies d’Islay prennent clairement le dessus. On ne sait plus vraiment si on est sur un rhum ou un whisky. C’est étrange et perturbant. Heureusement que nous avons mis celui-ci en fin de dégustation sans quoi nous n’aurions plus rien goûté après.

belle complexité, une tourbe qui lui offre beaucoup de potentiel, on ressent bien les 2 univers rhum en début et whisky en finish. Très apprécié avec un bon cigare pour les adeptes
