Kilkerran 8 Year Old Cask Strength (57.1%) Whisky

(70cl, 57.1%)

Kilkerran 8 Year Old Cask Strength (57.1%)

Kilkerran 8yo (57.1%) Bottling Note

Powerfully flavoursome single malt from Kilkerran, matured for 8 years and then bottled at cask strength! This particular bottling, released in late 2019, was aged in re-charred Oloroso sherry casks, so expect plenty of those yummy dried fruit, chocolate and festive spices notes alongside the peaty smoke.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Pow! Cinnamon, smoked ham and sultana, with a touch of apricot and coffee bean mixed up in there too.

Palate: Spicier on the palate, with cinnamon joined by black pepper and stem ginger. Dried fruit notes take their time, but eventually dominate the palate alongside a hint of honey.

Finish: Subtle coffee bitterness and lingering peat.

Quite simply put, extremely divine. It lasted me a few weeks at most. I'll be buying it from the auctions again ASAP!

Under £50? Find something better!
First glass and I thought typical sherry bomb. Good, but nothing special. Wow was I wrong. If you missed this bottle spending money on every other limited edition, you missed a trick. This is a special whisky. Beautiful sticky bbq on the nose, oily texture with savory meats on the tongue. Finish gives tanned leather and a smidgen of springbank funk. 6 out of 5.

First Kilkerran
I opened this bottle yesterday, my first Kilkerran and was presently surprised to find it’s Hazelburnesq. I’ve tried Hazelburn 14y 2004 Oloroso (2 bottles 😜) and if you stood them side-by-side blind, the only way you tell the Kilkerran From the Hazelburn is from the higher levels of BBQ char smoke and ABV, which carries through from nose to finish. Nose (sweet char smoke, light ash and red berries), spicy, more char and then a well balanced combo of sherry influences (not a sherry bomb) but sweet enough to enjoy the nose. The palate; sweet on entry a mix of toffee, honeycomb, some faint mint and some floral notes and then big char, liquorice, leather, smoke, spice (mmm) and then more dry BBQ char, long. With water the char and smoke becomes lighter, faint and the dram becomes more viscous and sticky and oily, sweeter, the sherry becomes more prominent with water, yummy. I prefer with a drop of water. This will only improve with oxidisation, great value. Thumbs up 👍 My first Kilkerran but won’t be my last 😎

don't buy this whisky :P
Don't buy this whisky. You won't want to know that it's a complex maple-y bacon flavoured sweet delight. You won't want to know how it tastes given it's dark alluring colour after only being matured for 8 years. You won't want to explore something a little more exciting. You won't want to find out that this amazing combination of wood and subtle smoke is something you can get behind you sherrry-bomb-lover-you!

If you don't buy this whisky it means there's more for me... so.... don't buy this whisky.
