What they say:

A half bottle of Kilkerran 9 year old Single Malt, matured in Rum casks and release at the Glengyle Distillery Open Day during the 2015 Campbeltown Malt’s Festival.

What I say:

From Moxies’s Tasting with Moxie – a Festivus for the rest of us.


Antique/refractive gold (3/20), oily thick streaky legs


Vanilla cream, light zesty citrus, pencil shavings, new wood, icing sugar sweetness, crème brulee, cane sugar, spices, cinnamon, a little cider vinegar fumes on hot potato chips


Rich oily and buttery, lemon butter pancakes, sweet and spiced, white pepper, melba toast, demerara or cane sugar, crème brulee, cigarette smoke, starts to thin in the mouth at the end


Long, sweet, spiced woody demerara rum


This has a rich rummy sweetness but just can’t quite carry this the whole distance, definitely a candied wood and whisky feel to this one.

Score: 86/100

Don’t take my word for it:
