Glengyle Distillery Kilkerran Heavily Peated Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml (Batch 6)
Mitchell's Glengyle Ltd. are very proud to be continuing and adding to the great Campbelltown Distilling tradition and the choice of the name reflects that. Kilkerran is derived from the Gaelic 'Ceann Loch Cille Chiarain' which is the name of the original settlement where Saint Kieran had his relgious cell and Campbeltown now stands. Kilkerran is thought to be suitable name for a new Campbeltown Malt since it was unusual for the old Campbeltown distillers to be called after a Glen, a custom more usually associated with the Speyside region.
This Heavily Peated Batch 6 single malt opens up to reveal citrus notes, vanilla cheesecake, rhubarb and custard sweets with delicate peat smoke. The palate starts with 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. A long and creamy finish. Notes of toasted oak and pencil shavings give way to a lasting sweet, fruity peat smoke
Note - item does not come with external tube. In the distillery's words: “It is our intention to reduce the amount of packaging we use across our group of companies, from Springbank and Kilkerran to William Cadenhead Ltd, and that any we do use is produced and procured as sustainably as possible."
