The nose has heavy rye notes and caramel. The palate has some dark caramel notes without being too sweet, then some spice which continues into a peppery finish. This one was great with a great balance of sweetness and spice.

This has a very light nose. The palate is very straight forward with sweetness and baking spices. There's a surprising lack of oak for its age. The finish is vanilla ice cream. This another easy drinker.

The nose is sweet with some oak providing nice balance. The palate has sweet iced tea with a slight spice infusion. The finish is mild. This is one of those "smooth" bourbons; it's very easy to drink and fun.

The nose is spicy in an Armagnac like way with some wine notes. The palate is sweet with milk chocolate and the finish is very sweet. This one started with a very complex nose, but then got simpler and simpler. It's good but I was disappointed that the spice on the nose didn't show through more on the palate and finish to counter the sweetness.

The nose on this one is sweet with banana candy. The banana continues on the palate with a very sweet, liquid candy type of taste. The profile is in the Evan Williams family. The finish has some cinnamon. This one was fine but nothing special.

The nose is sweet and slightly soapy. The palate is much more complex then the nose with some savory notes and orange rind and the finish is mild and not too sweet. This is a beefy bourbon which is nicely balanced and not overly sweet. Very nice.

Kilkerran Work in Progress 6 / Bourbon Wood

A new(ish) Campbeltowner owned by Springbank. This is the 10 year old release from Glengyle distillery, released as part of the Kilkerran Work in Progress series. This is the bourbon-aged expression.

n: sweet nose of leather and hard cheese rind. 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 brassy with some vanilla toffee and a dry peat smoke that rounds off the sweetness. Gravitates more towards grassy/vegetation notes in the finish. When left out for 30+ minutes it did improve (less grassy & sweet). An interesting whisky, but I’m not sold on Kilkerran yet.

n: rather light and non-descript. Clover, honeycomb, toffee, and maybe a whif of dry wood smoke.

 

t: light paper ash smoke, but very light, smooth and safe. Creamy malt, and cereal. Too easy to drink but the character is blended out to a safe zone. Would be a perfect whiskey for an introduction to scotch for someone fancy, but I like things that are more memorable.

n: Maritime floral

 

p:  Wow, that's an easy sipper.  More 'dew' than 'Islay' for sure.  Bit of toffee and antique wood, but for the most part thin and not much taste-wise.  Sort of an elite blend flavor.  I could give this to anyone.
