Top reviews for Kilkerran 12 Year Old:

— Really good with ice. Great citrus with butterscotch

— Good, bit of a bite but aftertaste is smooth

— This was a very unique dram! Got light honey, sweet spices, and a couple of different lemon-like notes in the nose - like a powdered sugar dusted lemon square and also a more earthy lemongrass as well. Taste brought some tropical fruit sweetness, more honey and lemon, and an earthy quality as well. I only got some smoke on the first couple of sips and then it dissipated for some reason. Beautiful mouthfeel too - creamy and fairly heavy. I reaaaaaalllly liked this!

Josh,
Well balanced dram with just a hint of smoke

Antti,
It is a very good, elegant, Single Malt Scotch Whisky that has an aromatic birth; while a rich & complex life leads to a long & velvety death with notes of lemon meringue, oiliness & salinity.

Very nice Scotch with a hint of smoke.

Hunter,
I had trouble tasting the fruity notes of this scotch, I managed to coax them out with a particular tasting style but it seems they’re generally overshadowed by the smoky flavor which I think lowers the overall quality

Aromas of fruit and cereal. Peach, pear, pineapple. Breakfast flakes. In the mouth almond paste, fruit tart. Lingering warm finish. A little smoke in the background. Very nice!

This is Campbeltown! Peaty nose, fruity palate, and spicy finish. Standard Campbeltown quality. Love it!

Andreous,
Oh my goodness, this is an incredible pour. A light smoke on the finish and upfront taste of butterscotch, almonds and ginger. If you have not tried it you must add it to your wish list.
