I was on Islay not long ago but since I hadn't heard of the new distillery
of Kilchoman I didn't see it. I understand they released their first malt
on 9 September this year. Has anyone tried it?

I have been to Kilchoman a couple of times. An interesting experience for
sure. I haven't tasted their actual whisky, but I have had a few drams of
their newmakes. Plural is justified here, because it was different spirits
each time. Somebody told me one was made with the use of their own malt
(they've got a malting floor), and the other one - with the Port Ellen malt.
Well, one was promising as for a newmake. The other one was a disaster -
smoked mackerel, overused frying oil, not a trace of an agreeable element.
To be quite honest, I don't know which one was which, but I do think there
is a potential. Once they learn how to malt barley (as I assume the awful
newmake was made witht heir own malt).

Cheers,
Rajmund

There is a review of it on Singlemalt.tv here:

I was there in May and tasted the new spirit it was lovely. Just
before bottling time, so I guess it was about the same as in the video
with Charlie MaClean. Its way ahead of its time. You wouldnt believe
it was such a young dram.

Peace,
