Kilkerran Heavily Peated Batch 2
Kilkerran is derived from the gaelic 'Ceann Loch Cille Chiarain' which is the name of the original settlement where Saint Kieran had his religious cell and Campbeltown now stands.
Kilkerran is thought to be a suitable name for a new malt since it was unusual for the old Campbeltown distilleries to be called after a glen, a custom more usually associated with the Speyside region.
Nose: Opens up to reveal citrus notes, vanilla cheesecake, rhubarb and custard sweeties with delicate peat smoke.
Palate: Freshly baked bramley apple pie and sweet salted caramel. The peat is prolific yet well integrated. A fresh coastal influence evokes memories of a blustery, busy, sea sprayed harbour.
Finish: Long and creamy. Notes of toasted oak and pencil shavings give way to a lasting sweet, fruity peat smoke.
