Words of Whisky:
Good but never really satisfying, I find the Kilkerran 8 Years Port Cask Matured lacks the distillery's DNA and is too reliant on the Port cask.
The port influence is quite intense, masking some of the Kilkerran character. The earthy smoke is not very noticeable even. Big whiffs of cherry marmelade, cassis and even some aceto di balsamico. Also faint touches of linseed oil, nail varnish and shoe polish. Ending on nougat, mocha and a hint of leather.
More smoky now. Earthy whiffs, jammy fruits, plenty of caramel and some light notes of straw. Some dirty touches as well, enhanced by coffee grounds and liquorice.
Lingering oak spices and syrupy winey notes.
