Kilkerran 8 Year Old Cask Strength Reviews
Producer's Tasting Notes
Nose: The peat aroma from the lightly peated barley is apparent from the off and some of the green apples which are becoming a feature of Kilkerran are also present. This whisky is like a favourite dessert, rhubarb crumble, stewed rhubarb, vanilla and all butter shortbread.
Palate: There’s an earthiness and saltiness, exactly what you want to taste in a Campbeltown dram. This is combined with icing sugar and puff candy which gives a sweetness to the whisky, along with milk chocolate and walnut flavours.
Finish: The peat remains, along with a sootiness, pencil shavings and a liquorice-influenced maltiness.

This whisky is remarkable, incredibly smooth for its age as well as it’s strength, it’s complexity is challenging, therefore those who are inexperienced would not appreciate this malt. It goes without saying that this is one of the only tasting experiences I have had in the last 5 years that was truly memorable, needless to say the bottle didn’t last long and another will need to be hunted down.
One of the finest sigle malt cask strength experience I've ever had. Good aroma. Don't need to add any water, waste of taste...
A hot,fiery whisky, kept adding more and more drops of water but to no avail, wished i had a bottle of the 12 y/o;which is a stellar whisky.Will leave it for a while hopefully it will improve.
