I just opened up the stats on this Kilkerran on Whiskybase and it’s currently going for € 162. It was released in July, and back then it was not even € 80. It has already doubled in price. Maybe at … Continue reading

Blind Tasting Competition 5 – Kilkerran Work in Progress 5, 9yo, Sherry Wood

A whisky I reviewed only a few weeks ago. I wasn’t overly thrilled back then but for some reason I liked it even less this time. Sniff: Heavy and cloying with hints of cheese and quite a bit of oak. … Continue reading
