Whisky Reviews for Kilkerran 06-year-old

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.25 points

  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    This is a young animal which, in this case, translates into a sharp
    palate and bitter finish.
    • Nose
      The nose is austere and offers dried grass, flints, lime, apples and
      pears. After a few minutes it becomes a lot more aromatic with loads of citrus.
      Sweet as Limoncello. Water hardly changes the profile. A bit more esters, but
      to little to be worth mentioning.
    • Taste
      On the palate, this is somewhat creamy with a lot of grains and grasses.
      Again a lot of citrus, like on the nose. Limezest. Through it you will discover
      a lot of kininie, making it quite bitter. Sharp as a knife. Heavily peppered.
      There is no change when diluted.
    • Finish
      The finish is long and bittersweet, but too sharp to be a top dram.

  2. Lafroy scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Youth, citrus notes, sourness, a little
      bit of sea saltiness, light oak, some freshness, a lot of vanilla, reminding of
      vanilla pudding or cheesecake, bourbon, a lot of sweetness.
    • Taste
      A lot of sweetness, then hints of pepper, a
      little bit of dryness, marcepane, spruce, leather, some honey, white pepper,
      chili, and herbs.
    • Finish
      Long, semidry, hot with hints of pepper, cheese
      and vanilla pudding.
