Nose

Plutôt délicat. Bonbons au miel. Fumée végétale. Déjà épicé. Le malt s'affirme de plus en plus.

Taste

Bien vif et épicé, il donne essentiellement du malt (pas de fruits malheureusement). Accroche légèrement.

Finish

Epicé et assez austère.

Jonquiripe corn
Nose

startet säuerlich-fruchtig, Zitrone, grüner Apfel, wird dann süßer mit Vanille, Honig und etwas Nuss-Nougat-Creme, noch später dann erdig, nasses altes Holz, etwas mineralisch, etwas süßlich-muffig-pilzig

Taste

knackig, getreidig mit Nuss und etwas Pfeffer, darüber liegt eine sanfte, aber deutlich süßliche Rauchnote, und wieder Erde, etwas mineralisch, salzig, ein Hauch Tabak

Finish

trocken, peffrig, der Rauch kommt hier nochmal ziemlich stark zur Geltung, dazu etwas Walnuss

Comments

Wie bei Kilkerran üblich guter Whisky, wie üblich auch ursprünglich fair bepreist, bei diesem Release ist das Bourbonfass nicht so dominant, dafür fällt es deutlich rauchiger aus als die Vorgänger.

Pale straw
Nose

Young, with some metallic notes, pear and lemon juice. Also an over-infused wood character with vanilla and oak shavings. Behind that, there is earthy, dirty peat. After a while, the somewhat sick young smell vanishes (luckily). It gets fresh and earthy: mainly lemon, peat, putty and forest soil. 

Taste

Medium bodied, with some spices, and further the same combination of fresh lemons with earthy peat and tobacco. Not overly complex though. 

Finish

Short to medium. A little drying on ginger, otherwise the earthy notes dominate. 

Comments

Reasonable, but I wouldn't buy a bottle of this one.

Cheers! Paul

Nose: vanilla, wood, lemon, liquorice. Some smoke. Is that hazelnut? Spicy; turmeric, cumin, ginger, cardamom?

Taste: smoke, vanilla, black pepper. The citrus has more of an orange-y flavour, not as sour as on the nose. And some hazelnut.

Finish: lingering, but the pepper quickly gives way to ginger and cardamom.

N: Notes of bourbon cask led mushrooms, rich herbals and vibrant Weetabix

T: clean, smoky-ish barley with good form, body and mouthfeel.

F: There are vanilla notes translated in a creamy milky way. Delicious no less

C: So very like the Kilkerran 12yo that was released only weeks ago albeit with less smoke. Loses a few points for less complexity.
