    [May, 2017]  I had this dram during a Kilkerran masterclass tasting at the Campbeltown whisky festival.  

    It has a not very active nose, rather shy on some sherry and malty aromas.  It arrives a little adstringent in the mouth (cold ashes).  The taste is all about sweet malty and sherry flavours in a nice balance.  Medium finish with slight bitter notes (tannins).

    This whisky, on the whole, is inferior to Release 5 WiP Bourbon 2013. You expect sherry from pressure and emotions, but here Oloroso is dry ... is it?
    • Nose
      The color is noticeably darker than bourbon, but still light, at first salted nuts, dry sour sherry, again a bit of medicine, sulfites, the same bandages with pills, a little iodine, foliage. For sherry derivatives, of course, is not enough. Yes, rubber harnesses. But after 30 minutes, it still opened, it smelled of dried figs, freshly sawed branches of fruit trees in the garden. And very pleased with exotic sweet shades.
    • Taste
      Spicy, herbal tinctures, rather hardened, knits a little, cardboard, apples, a little cinnamon.
    • Finish
      In the aftertaste is inferior to the same age of 9yo 2013 Bourbon, tannins, knitting wood of fruit trees, a little sweetness. Well, somehow quite simple.

    • Nose

      Soft, slightly cautious sherry nose. Just as if it was a short finish. Lacks depth and strength.
    • Taste

      Starts quietly, but then becomes rather dirty. Not specifically on sherry in a good way, but somewhat chemically. By difficult to describe the dirty character.
    • Finish
      75 75
      Heavily spicy finish. Burns and stimulates properly with a little burnt rubber and sulfur. Not super pleasant.

    First mineral, evoking slate, quite direct, it then gives malt, farm peat and granny smith apples. Later, the barrel of bourbon takes the ascendant.Bien sweeter than the announcement nose (honey, vanilla ...), it has a beautiful texture, but remains nevertheless a little angular - sign of youth.Rather delicate and fruity, beautiful persistence on sweet spices.A good WIP, but not the best. Enthusiasm 3/5

  6. Achany scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Soft influence of sherry, nuts, dark fruits, a little muddy, spices, a fine influence of oak. A well balanced dram, nice sherry but still malty. I found some bottles for a very reasonable price. Perfect
