  1. Geux scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    Very seductive and gourmand nose on frangipane, dried fruit, almond, but also green nuts!
    On the palate embarrassing attack on sweet notes, then return the side gournat with croissants, almond ... but also some fruity notes orange candied.
    Final a little too hot and on the green bitterness.

    Not bad in the end, but I do not find the markers asteres and the mineral that I like at Kilkerran.
    Interesting but also a little disappointing.

    A very greedy whisky, very sherry / dried fruit. I loved.
    • Nose
      A very greedy nose on honey, vanilla and dried fruits (nuts and grapes in particular). I feel like I'm feeling the family nut pie !!
    • Taste
      Alcohol is well integrated. Dry but still greedy. Dried fruits are also always present ... the madeira finish is equivalent in the mouth to a Sherry. Behind the cereals and barley are slowly becoming pleasant.
    • Finish
      Long and dry on nuts and vanilla ... a few residues of grapes hang here and there ...

    • Nose
      Ultra caramelized initially! Toast. The smoke emerges. The fruit is there but remains a little masked. Floral notes. The dried fruits finally impose themselves.
      A little water helps this nose to unfold.
    • Taste
      Cereals. Vegetable notes. Fine peat. Really very soft afterwards. The water boosts the toffee and makes the dram very fragrant!
    • Finish
      Floral again, sweet spices. Very fragrant. Even more dynamic with water.

      Enthusiasm
      Nose 3/5
      Mouth 3/5 (4/5 with water)
      Final 4/5

      Whisky n ° 1887
