Here I am at the 11th Kilkerran 15yo of the international series.
We end with Oloroso.
The great strength of these traffic jams for me is the rise in power of the peat from the nose to the finish.
Here, it is superbly done. We only regret the abundance of caramel and spices on the palate.
A good nose of simple but effective sherry.
Leather, shoe polish cream, dried fruits (nuts, almonds, dates, figs, prunes).
A big dose of wood, a little too pronounced.
Black pepper, spices. The keg gave a lot.
Light gray, barbecue. Rather similar to the profile of some young Mortlach.
In the mouth, it is very well integrated.
The fruits are fresher, but covered with a layer of salted caramel.
Always a lot of wood, spices. Bitter chocolate.
Black pepper is invasive.
We have a light peat and cold ash. Always this barbecue side.
Long finish on leather, chocolate, cocoa powder, filter coffee, pepper and wood.
Light oily peat and barbecue, again and again.
