Member Ratings and Notes
Ries
 
n: sweet nose of leather and hard cheese rind. Smells like old plastic/vinyl raincoat. Some heather and malt, raw buttermilk biscuit dough, fresh cut lawn in the morning.
 
t:  sharp and sweet malt with lemon wax and dried coconut. This is very metallic and brassy with some vanilla toffee and a dry peat smoke that rounds off the sweetness. Gravitates towards grass/vegetation notes in the finish. When left out for 30+ minutes it did improve (less grassy & sweet). This might be an interesting whisky, but I’m not sold on Kilkerran yet.  [C/C+]
 
Fuji
 

N: New make. Burning plastic, plastic grocery bags, sourdough, wet pennies and rusty metal. Star anise, eucalyptus and mint. A bit musty.

 

P: Thin on the palate. Peat and cinnamon with bit o honey.


F: Metallic finish.
