Kilkerran Heavy Peated is a fourth batch created in Campbeltown. It was aged in Ex-Bourbon Cask and finished in Ex-Sherry Cask before bottling at cask strength.
Nose: A strong maritime influence evokes memories of fishing boats in the harbour and sea salt being carried on the wind. The sweet peat smoke is intense and welcoming as it fills the glass, like a smouldering blackened marshmallow on the campfire. There is a floral earthiness reminiscent of our native blooming wind heather
Palate: It’s a complex whisky and tastes beyond its years. Peat smoke dominates with malty undertones of crushed digestive biscuits. A liquorice note develops as it opens up and there is a hint of sweetness, like sticky honey glazing
Finish: The finish is long with the strong peat smoke influence remaining alongside malty, cereal characteristics. A slight oakiness is detectable and coastal maritime flavours endure.
