  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.
    • Nose

      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. Mannix65 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    tasty, sweet - makes you want more
    • Nose
      88 88
      Sherry, smoke, meat broth, cold ashes, cranberries, sour cherry, dark chocolate
    • Taste
      88 88
      The mouth gets what the nose pretends, the sherry sweets and the chocolate in the foreground
    • Finish
      87 87
      long - sweet red fruits with smoke

  4. detachedblue scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    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.

  8. topos did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    very good. 7/10
    • Nose
      kk character has not been swamped but mixes well with the sherry. sherry, almonds, raisins, gunpowder

  9. Calmar scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A good representative of dry sherry whisky, strict, prone to minimalism, nothing more, but all you need is there in sufficient quantities, good balance, integrity, depth and complexity of the composition.
    • Nose
      Restrained, dry, spicy wood, dried fruits, raisins, dark chocolate, coffee, nuts, mineral notes - drying plaster, stone dust; herbarium, light sulfur-metal tones, puer.
    • Taste
      Thick, saturated, oak, raisins, dried grapes, sharp mineral notes, dark chocolate, coffee, leather goods, burnt caramel, puer.
    • Finish
      Spicy, warming, dry, pu-erh, oak, burnt crackers, leavened must, a little peat, coffee.
