Whisky Reviews for Kilkerran 08-year-old

  1. Glenjasper scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    What can I say? I am not a friend of young whiskys, There are only a few that make my taste. The alcohol is usually too much and makes it difficult to enjoy.

    This cask strength can not really be enjoyed without a few drops of water. Too agitated, too severe.

    I do not think that I have found a new friend. But it could also have been up to me. I'll invest the € 50.00 somewhere else next time.

    This whisky reminds me of a young Linkwood, who is also not one of my favorites.

    But I love the big brother. Maybe I have to be patient and wait a few years.

    I do not want to ban Glengyle after all.

      Vanilla, hay, peat, citrus scents, smoke, the alcohol makes more fragrance detection more difficult.

      Vanilla dominates, plus citrus fruits, but only if you add a few drops of water. Themselves to blame. I did not have to buy an 8-year-old.

      Means short. Maximum. Disappointing for the price. At least the vanilla prevails.
