Kilkerran 8 yr Sherry Matured Single Malt Scotch


Reminder: We only ship spirits within California at this time.

Nose: a really nice, juicy sherry character. Lots of redcurrants and sour cherry candy. Behind this I find the expected dusty notes, leather, coffee and walnuts, as well as mentholated hints. Charred oak. Plenty of tobacco leaves, pleasant hints of humid cellars in Jerez. Clean and simply really good.

Mouth: a deeply earthy and smoky side now, which combines nicely with the tobacco flavors and muddy / foresty notes. Syrupy cherries, drops of cough syrup, cocoa and licorice. Subtle farmy notes. Dark chocolate mousse with salt flakes (great combo). All in all, a good mix of darkness and brightness. Some burnt wood and still a whiff of rubber perhaps, but I find this cleaner and more enjoyable than last year’s Kilkerran 8 Years Oloroso version.

Finish: long, smoky, with more licorice and char.

A really good sherry cask version of Kilkerran. This whisky is never entirely clean, but with this kind of sherry influence you get a compelling combination of Jerez aroma and peaty character. Grab it if you have a chance." -Whisky Notes
