  1. aphex scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very good nose, tasty and rich palate. Maybe a tad too rich though.
    • Nose
      Leather, dried fruits (raisins, prunes, figs), coffee, tobacco, burnt wood. After aeration, liquorice, light medicinal and resinous notes.
    • Taste
      Thick, almost syrupy but not cloying like the fino casks. Blackberries, blackcurrants. Burnt wood again. Dark chocolate, coffee, pepper.
      With water, dried fruits and more spices on the palate. Liquorice.
    • Finish
      Long, dark chocolate, coffee, pepper.

    • Nose
      86 86
      Sherry, quite simple, the sample may have been stale because it was open for a few months.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Quite dry, wood and caramel.
      Alcohol is sweet.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Astringent and woody, not very pleasant.

    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.
    • Nose
      89 89
      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.
    • Taste
      87 87
      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.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Long finish on leather, chocolate, cocoa powder, filter coffee, pepper and wood.
      Light oily peat and barbecue, again and again.
