  • Excerpt: 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.

  • Excerpt: Spicy and zesty, with developing stewed fruits, dark chocolate, and deep sherry notes on the palate. The finish is long and persistently spicy, mildly smoky, with quite dry sherry notes.

  • Intro:

    This comes from the Glengyle distillery. This is a yearly release from Kilkerran displaying a different maturation. This is #6 which features sherry wood.

  • Nose:

    Its sweet and smokey and the sherry peeks through. To be honest, I didn't have any idea what a typical Kilkerran profile is but I love the marrying of the sweet and smokey. The sherry is a great touch on top.

  • Taste:

    Honey, smoke and sherry sit at the front. I get a lot of similar notes as some of the lighter Bruichladdichs I've had in the past which is interesting given the regional difference. It's like a delicious barbecue in my mouth but with sherry introduced as well.

  • Finish:

    Medium long and gentle. Well blended. The sherry really shines here peeking through the smoke. I like that the smoke is a bit heavier in the finish. Very savory.

  • Overall:

    Interesting but delicious. It's a good product from Kilkerran.

  • Score:

    6
