Kilkerran 8yr old, 57.1% ABV.

kilkerran 8yr old

Appearance – Dark copper in colour, very viscous on the glass, incredibly slow running thick legs.

Nose – Big ABV hit initially, fizzy in the nose, very Sherry heavy, with Green fruits, apples and pears, stem ginger, cream soda, slightly nutty and vegetal, cinnamon, burnt brown sugars, and a note of old style shoe polish.

Palate – Lots of Sherry, stewed dark fruits, ginger spice, cola cubes, brown sugar, old leather, raisins, slight cocoa bitterness, black pepper, oak, and sweet liquorice, very nice.

Finish – Medium to long in length, dark chocolate, raisins, and black pepper, and cola cubes.

My thoughts – For 8yrs old this is a belter, so much flavour, so deep and robust, it’s a super whisky imho.

Would I buy a bottle? – Yep, a super drop, that I would love to get to know better, thoroughly enjoyed it.
