  1. Ziggy24 scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Pretty young expression of Kilkerran. Arround 7 or 8 years I guess..? I do like it, it has some dirty notes, sherrytones and a bit of yellow fruit in the aftertaste. It´s not my favorite Kilkerran, but in general a pleasant drink.

  5. Whisk(e)yCharlie did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Musty. Muggy. A little dank. Sulfur/mineralic sherry. Also meaty sherry a la Craigellachie. Rotten red apples. Other fruits.
    • Taste
      Definitely that meaty type of sherry. It's a dominant note. Some salinic coastal notes when you chew it. Definite notes of Campbeltown peat. Pez candy/Flintstones vitamins.
    • Finish
      More overripe apple from the nose. Some of the sulfur as well. Gets pezzy. Bitter chocolate. As it sits, more coastal. Not a forceful finish, but an enduring one.

    Day 23 of Lockdown - 9th April - There is a time for departure, even when there’s no certain place to go. - Tennessee Williams (Reader’s Digest 2011, April)

    N- Drift of sulphur and oily resin to begin with plascticine at the backdrop. Lead to basketful of green mango, vanilla with citrus peels and spiced marsala tea looming. A wee stiff with persistent resinous shielded most the above, but get better with breathing time. (87/21)

    P- Peat shines here, neither smokey nor medicinal, but raw earth with hearty floral, brine-y honey, muddy and grassy, accompany by orange bitter, pomelo peels and flows of dry resinous. Woody, sweet dried fruits and vanilla plum jam. Solid and holding up very well. (91/22)

    F- Medium long, tannin and dry that dissolved to savoury brininess. Teasing spicy at the tip with warm smokes building further down the palate. Elegant but intangible at time, highly enjoyable if can understand its rhythm and underlying depth . (90/22)

    There is a strange sweetness on the one hand, and on the other hand a dryness with rather grassy notes ... and both are not really compatible. Notes from 30.12.2016 Rating 30.12.2016 => 78/100 Rating 22.01.2018 => 84/100
    • Nose
      Dry sherry tones such as light grapes and gooseberry. Arkazienhonig and later some grass and hay.
    • Taste
      On the palate, the grassy notes are in the foreground and are flanked by an unnatural sweetness, which seems grafted somehow.
    • Finish
      Long and dry

  16. Calmar scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Like his bourbon brother Molot came out quite good, dense and saturated for his strength and age, but most importantly - there is in him an individuality that distinguishes the production of this distillery, a recognizable kernel, and here, as in the case of bourbon, barrels that do not close themselves basis, and emphasizing its features (well, not as vividly as in the case of bourbon, all the same sherry ..).
    • Nose
      Restrained, wet, raw board, raisins, grains, nuts, sweet wool, caramel, a little leather goods.
    • Taste
        Enough powerful, raisins, dried fruits, a little red pepper, orange, mango, even some tropical fruits, oak, caramel, herbal notes.
    • Finish
      Spicy, warming, ginger candied fruits, jam from lemon and orange peels, lollipops, light buttery, slightly tart oak.

  23. erikz scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Tasted this blind. Loved it, nice and light whisky with lots of complexity. I think the sherry never left the cask though, couldn't find any sherry notes in this one.
    • Nose
      Orange rind, honey, mint, floral/grassy, leather, a hint of glue, chalk, minerals.
    • Taste
      Honey, vanilla like from a virgin oak cask. Yellow fruit, especially apricot, orange rind, red grapefruit, caramel, spicy (mint really shows here). Very light on the palate, not oily at all.
    • Finish
      White pepper, acids, warm, briny, sweet like sugar cane, minerals. Average to long finish.

  24. DrinkingWhisky scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Following a supposed hint, it could be a Benromach. I have no idea what it could be otherwise, so I'll stick with that. Tasted during a blind tasting competition in May/June 2017.  
    • Nose
      Quite punchy despite the lower ABV. I get "darker" tones at first (dark raisins, plums); later on "lighter" bourbon-cask-tones - yellow raisins, apricot. Is that a faint hint of tobacco or smoke on the background? Mmm, smoked bacon. 
    • Taste
      It has a peppery start, followed by orange zest with a hint of grapefruit bitterness. Aniseed, cumin, and a faint hint of smoke lingering on the background. 
    • Finish
      The finish is a bit disappointing: it dissipates quite fast. Cumin and aniseed stay on top.

  33. HunterRomario scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    We first tasted it together with "brothers" during our tasting in autumn 2015 in HK. I liked it there, at home, then, at the time, I picked up the imported sample, and, as in Tullibardine, I picked it up. Rich, colorful, interesting. Króca had a happy hand when choosing both bottles.
    • Nose
      Sherry, milk chocolate, a bit of "pop music," meaning good, that is, a fairytale with a cotton wool and a zucchini. It is also sweetly woody, spice, in the background there is a root vegetable, pistachio. (86 b)
    • Taste
      Sweet, smooth, very pleasant to soft (loved by the pets), the sweetest of the X. degu BR tasted. Milk chocolate, heavier fruit. Yeah, I like this style a lot. It has grapes in the flavor, spits it spicyly. Above all, sweet sherry smirks, juice, and as a dot, then, in the reverie, a puff of skill. (89 b)

  34. Albaron scored this whisky 85 points Specialist

    A delicious whisky with a lot of pleasant aromas, the smoke complements nicely and completes the aroma profile. A promising malt.
    • Nose
      light alcohol, sherry, a hint of sulfur, toffee, some dried fruit and fruit sweeties, some smoke
    • Taste
      Here, too, light alcohol, then sherry, dried fruit, black tea and, surprisingly, a good dose of smoke creeps in as well
    • Finish
      The sherry, some malty sweetness, getting dry and the smoke stays

    The light alcohol note that appears in between darkens a bit the overall impression, but all in all a worthwhile malt from the Campbeltown region.
    • Nose
      85 85
      A beautiful strong Sherrynote pushes immediately in the nose. No restraint and no shyness.
      There are also raisins to be found, and I mean to guess some gingerbread.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Hmm, it goes on happily with Sherry, who - surprising in this young bottling - clearly shows impacts of wood.
      As soon as the sherry rush has subsided, wild herbs appear that tend to bitterness.
      It shows a slightly alcoholic note, which, however, also abates again.
      It dominates dark fruits such as plums and raisins.
    • Finish
      85 85
      In the finish, the sherry remains beautifully preserved, not tipping away into the spicy or bitter.

    Whiskyfun:

    Kilkerran 'Work in Progress 6 - Sherry Wood' (46%, OB, 2014)  I remember I’ve totally fallen in love wit the bourbon version (WF 91) thus never really wanted to try the sherry while on my honeymoon with the bourbon. But ‘things’ have become quieter, so, let’s do it… Colour: pale gold. Nose: yeah, it hasn’t got the brightness and the immediate elegance of the bourbon. First, I get sulphur – not the first time – and second, I’m not against cabbage and struck matches, but there’s a little too much of all that. The good news is that it all settles down after one minute (once your olfactory bulb has managed to filter all that out, I imagine), leaving room for orangey dust and sooty and walnutty leather. Mouth: better. I mean, more to my liking. Oranges, pink grapefruits, some kind of medicinal sweets – that’s right, cough drops, and some kind of buttery tea. Tibetan yak tea? Probably not… Finish: quite long, always a little dirty-ish and kind of unlikely. It’s perhaps a little smokier as well. Pleasant notes of Seville oranges in the aftertaste, that’s better. Comments: an interesting dram, but I find it so unlikely at times, that I just wouldn’t recommend it. I think I liked batch #4 rather better. SGP:461 - 79 points.

    • Nose
      Very vegetal. Green wood. It's interesting, but it lacks balance. Some rather acidic notes, like vinegar are not more pleasant. Sulfur, lime, mint .. It's poor.
    • Taste
      Soap, camphor, spices, lime. Fresh.
    • Finish
      Short on notes of spices and camphor.

    http://www.weinkenner.de/2015/kilkerran-die-neueste-alte-destillerie-in-campbeltown-36428/ Color: pale gold
    Nose: Fruity notes of mirabelle, honey, charcoal and something weird, lead-like. Overall little spice, but a light Schnapps character. Now flowery-sweet with a stocky perfume note.
    Taste: Sweet and creamy, green nutshells, salty herbs that are getting more and more bitter. Liquorice, black tea that has been drawn too long, bitter coffee and, to finish, bitter oak.
    Finish: Too long! A terribly bitter composition of green, bitter oak and covered herbal tea with a dash of maple syrup.
    Remark: Unanimous - we do not need it a second time !!!

    I find this version
    slightly less good than the bourbon matured cousin. Both bottles can be bought
    for less than 50 EUR, so they are worth a try.
    • Nose
      The nose is sweet,
      dark  and mysterious. The peat is
      completely drowned out by the sweet sherry, coming in the shape of
      strawberries, water melon, roasted nuts and raspberries. The spices present are
      cinnamon and liquorice, but they play second fiddle. It seems to be mildly
      perfumy. But not disturbingly so.
    • Taste
      It is oily and spicy
      on the palate with obvious sherry influences such as nuts, rhubarb, chocolate
      and even some tobacco. The peat now becomes a bit more powerful. It is a bit
      piquant on pepper and liquorice. Hint of espresso. Midpalate it turns to fruit
      with the emphasis on dried exotic fruits, which I can appreciate. Mango?
      Papaya? Agrum? I had these in the bourbon matured version as well. Must be the
      spirit, then.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium
      long with the espresso returning. Nice development of smoke as well. Good.

    • Finish
      medium drying, pepper, some sweet fruits and nuts

  50. Astrid scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    This malt needs a lot of time to develop its darker aromas, but it is worth waiting. However, his youth is omnipresent and intrusive, yet he is fascinatingly drinkable. Five years more barrel and you would have an interesting result.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Immediately mild sherry sweetness and metallic youth, pleasantly subtle salty smoke note, traces of vanilla and caramel, roasted almonds, rum raisins and after a while also prunes, mild (poultry) grilled meat marinade in connection with blossom honey, slightly spicy, a little cinnamon and plum, in the background fresh herbs (mint / green tea)
    • Taste
      85 85
      sweet fruity sherry, intense milk chocolate, dates, spicy with a little pepper, honey gingerbread, slight bitterness, above all there is alcoholic spiciness
    • Finish
      85 85
      Sherry, long dark chocolate, with ripe plums, raisins, hardly any spice, some burnt caramel and an implied hint of smokiness, it remains a slight dryness

  51. Toffie76 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      More closed than the bourbon version, less clean and less lively. Dried fruits, floral, ripe banana. Solids, polish, rancio, butyric acid.
    • Taste
      Frank attack, peppery. Long enough and complex for whisky reduced to 46 °.
    • Finish
      Woody finish, long bitter and too leaning

  52. Bishlouk scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A sherry imprint present but not stifling. Well done, nice, but not special (less than the bourbon version, anyway).
    (note made at the opening of the bottle)
    • Nose
      Iodine, white fruits, some sweet wisdom. Raisins, a light dusty smoke. Honey of spring flowers. Raisins are becoming more and more important.
    • Taste
      Tons of raisins. Caramelized honey. Iodine develops, accompanied by a slight hay smoke. A little molasses in the distance.
    • Finish
      Average. Spicy tingles in the cheeks, and a pinch of honeyed pepper.

  53. pilgrim77 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Tasted side-by-side with the bourbon cask, this one is a lot smoother and fruitier on the nose, lacking a lot of the 'dirtier' elements I found in the bourbon version but with a big dollop of honey instead. A drop of water again released more woody elements, whilst enhancing the dark fruits (cherries, prunes etc). Similarly dark and fruity on the palate, with the sherry influence adding a coating of syrupy honey to the peppery notes. Much more similar to the bourbon version on the finish, with a faintly smokey Campbelltown-esque profile. I think I slightly preferred this one to the bourbon version, but both are high quality and are also very fairly priced.

  54. Magnus Hillman scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Had this one side by side with the bourbon cask Both are fantastic drams and such high quality whisky for around 40€.

    (Rating interval 85-88)
    • Nose
      Breakfast cereal, treacle, juicy raisins and malt.
    • Taste
      Breakfast cereal again together with some dry spicy notes, cinnamon, rubber (or green eraser) and licorice. Water brings some well integrated and delicate smoke.
    • Finish
      Black pepper, spices, something herbal, maybe bay leaf and again delicate smoke. It is long and lingering with the whisky coating the tongue. Really good.

    Nose: slightly salty, maritime, some peat, fruity acidity, herbal liqueur, slightly dirty.
    Mouth: strong, salty, peaty, detailed, nutty and slightly sour fruity sherry notes, a little (minimal) sulfur, and also some oak.
    Finish: the nutty sherry notes are spreading, a little smoke comes in and takes the helm.

    Conclusion: I like it, this Campbeltown smoke, which also distinguishes Springbank, together with the maritime notes and the sherry I find very successful.

    the nose was good, the mouth could not connect
    the finish is good again
    Point deduction because of the disturbing alcohol note
    Sherry Cask is expected by the customer
    he does not really get it

  58. Pawloff scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Fired pieces of wood, strawberries, watermelon, raspberry, cinnamon, vanilla sugar, flour, warm, comfortable, devoid of intensity that gives full power, but I see potential. 
    • Taste
      Apple pie, rhubarb, pepper, rice, citrus, sunflower, a little intrusive timber, salt, soft yet clear smoke, a bit of a powder. 
    • Finish
      Echoes of cherries in alcohol, a bit of smoke.

  62. Noface83 scored this whisky 86 points Specialist

    At the beginning, I was a little disappointed - but after the first departure, the whisky from sip to sip was always better and more complex. The whisky does not need water but has some time to fully develop. A really good malt!
    • Nose
      subtly aromatic smoke, fermented mango, dried fruit banana, floral with a hint of wild berries and sherry sweetness, alcohol is slightly noticeable
    • Taste
      full on with lots of sweetness and exotic fruits, some licorice and oak
    • Finish
      long finish with more sherry (including dates) and a pleasant sweetness, the subtle smoky notes combine with the oak to an interesting spicy sharp note that remains very long.

  63. KayMeertens scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    More typical Springbank style than the bourbon version and slightly less peated. The sherry only turns up in the finish.
    • Nose
      Mango, papaya, dried banana and a little peat. Slightly perfumy and vegetal.
    • Taste
      Mango, papaya, peat ash, cranberry, chocolate, pepper and liquorice.
    • Finish
      Raspberry, peat ash, mango, chocolate and chilli pepper.
