This heavily peated, double distilled scotch has a sweet, fruity peat smoke flavor. Matured in a combination of 80% bourbon casks and 20% Sherry casks.
Nose: Opens up to reveal citrus notes, vanilla cheesecake, rhubarb and custard sweets 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.
The whiskies from the Kilkerran range produced at Cambeltown's Glengyle distillery have been impressive indeed, and this one continues that theme. Kilkerran Heavily Peated is, as you might expect, an enjoyably smoky expression that should convince any Islay enthusiast that peaty treats don't just come from one Hebridean island.
