  1. Wolfe Tone scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    Fragrance: full, malty, vanilla, dry, smoky and ashy, also fruity: apple, lime, grapefruit and chili.

    Taste: vanilla, apple, malt, smoke, citrus and a nutty aftertaste.

    Finish: wax, ash, chili, citrus and almond.

    I think it's high time for Kilkerran to up its cask strength offering from 8 year to 10 year. The extra two years would really help to distinguish it and I suspect the distillery has enough barrels now to do it. I'm holding up my glass of 8 year old CS oloroso now and toasting to the idea of a ten year cask strength offering from a great distillery.

    Great 12er. I would have thought it blind for a Springbank 15

    Very tasty, doesn't quite compare to the very first batch, but it's more flattering. The price is definitely flattering for the wallet.

      Creamy and creamy, nut cake with candied walnuts on top, plaque color, clay - delicious for those who love Campbeltown!

      Tart and rather short. The weakest part.
