My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark straw
Nose: Honey, vanilla, lemon and orange zest, ripe sweet melon, ginger.
Palate: Everything from the nose plus a little caramel and pepper.
Finish: Long, sweet fruit, slightly spicy.
Overall: The Kilkerran successfully continues its path to maturity. At only seven years it is already remarkably ‘grown-up’. A perfect sipping dram.
Rating: 85/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
