  1. ARDBERG scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A big sherry dram with a hint of smoke, that could well be a Springbank. A few drops of water help to bring out the nose and taste and enhances the rich finish.

  2. Bosi scored this whisky 89 points Specialist

    A great whisky with fantastic nose, delicious taste and great finish. For an absolute Top Whisky is still missing some balance, because the taste can not quite keep up with the flavor.
    I would advise against water, as the Kilkerran flattens quite a bit.

      After giving the whisky about 30 minutes to breathe, the first impression of the aroma is simply terrific. The sherry and the smoke of Kilkerran harmonize perfectly: Milk chocolate, raisins, blood orange, Longrow-like smoke, the slightly musty aroma of Springbank and a seasoning of gravy, syrup and maggi give a bombastic, but round overall picture.
      With water are still cream candies à la Werthers genuine added.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Without water, the whisky tastes slightly dry with lots of sweetness from prunes, dark grapes, tender-bitter chocolate and coffee. The smoke has almost completely disappeared.
      After adding a little water add some acid and the chocolate is strengthened. It takes the whisky but also something the body.
    • Finish
      88 88
      A very long finish paired with a mix of sweet and slightly sour aromas of honey, nuts and dry sherry.

  3. detachedblue scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    OK, the first ever single cask bottling of Kilkerran, and sherry cask! High expectation then. In my humble opinion, this is a modern sherry whisky with overly dark characters. Not to my liking.
    • Nose
      Dunnage warehouse, huge sherried oak, dark fruits like plums. A bit ashy and dirty, luckily no sulphur
    • Taste
      Dried fruits, herbs, thick mouthcoating and bitter tannins, not complex but rather one-dimensional
    • Finish
      Medium, sherry characters, plums. Not an easy dram.

  4. Mascht scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    fresh sherry notes, blood orange, bacon, maritime, wonderful
    • Nose
      90 90
      intense with sour red fruits like sour cherries, red currant, blackberries and blood oranges, as well as bacon, yeast dough, marzipan, lots of chocolate and a strong maritime note
    • Taste
      89 89
      oily, mouth-filling, very strong maritime and salty, dark fruits, such as blackberries and prunes, with dark chocolate, roasted hazelnuts and herbal sweets
    • Finish
      90 90
      very long, bitter cocoa, dark fruits and bacon remain

  5. Allandale scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Sweet, smoke and fruit
    • Nose
      Some milk chocolate fruit and nut found, prunes swell, and a hint smoke.
    • Taste
      Oily, gentle wood spices, touch of smoke continuing.
    • Finish
      Long and warm with dark sherry notes, honey sweetness,
      raisins and some mixed nuts.
