Whisky Reviews for Kilkerran 12-year-old

13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.45 points

  1. Bosi scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    What can you say, Kilkerran almost never disappoints. A really successful dram, well crafted with a pleasantly restrained barrel influence. Gladly more of it.
    • Nose
      Wax and some fudge are the first aromas that come into my nose. Later it will be easy for Christmas with pears, cinnamon, nutmeg and almonds. Somewhat hidden, a mineral note stands out.
    • Taste
      The taste also suits the Christmas season: oranges and triple sec start and add some smoke and a hint of pepper. The mouthfeel is nice and oily.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long and the smoke is now more noticeable. There is also a strong dash of salt.

  2. peatbogger scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    An unusual rich fullness that hits straight away and carry all the way.
    • Nose
      First thing to strike me is the saltyness, not shoreline briney but more pure seawater. A little in the distance there's a stable. White table wine. Some wood and faint chocolate confectionary. Very vague peat.
    • Taste
      I didn't notice that much peat on the nose, but it's right up there from the beginning on the taste. Very bold, mineral and again salty.

      Gentle spice, not hot but certainly warming.
    • Finish
      Sweeter on the finish, but the salt lingers through.

      Remarkably long.
