  • Excerpt: This is definitely a whiskey for those with a sweet tooth. I found it interesting mostly on account of the tart cherry notes that come and go.

  • Excerpt: That said, there's also plenty of flavor: vanilla and butterscotch, plum and dried apricot, plus baking spice and a whiff of smoke in the finish.

Raided Score is a conversion from an external site's score, to our in house uniform scoring system. Please see the FAQ for more.

  • Intro:

    This is produced at the Kilbeggan distillery and matured in a sherry cask.

  • Nose:

    Sherry and raisins followed by plum and syrupy grape. There's also a funky metallic note, which isn't off putting, but is present and interesting.

  • Taste:

    Sherry and sweet leathery spice, followed by more plum/raisin syrupy sweetness. I like it. Coats nicely and has a decent mouth feel with good oiliness.

  • Finish:

    Shorter than I was expecting but still not too bad. A little hot and a lot less sweet than the nose or mouth feel would lead you to believe, but all of the typical sherry notes are there. The metallic note from the nose is joined by a subtle plastic-y note but it's not terrible.

  • Overall:

    This is really interesting but ultimately the finish was a little disappointing. I'd rather have something like Aberlour 12NCF or a GlenDronach.

  • Score:

    5
