Kilkerran is the flagship whisky made by the Glengyle Distillery, Springbank's sister distillery just down the road in Campbeltown. Reopened just a handful of years ago in 2004 (80 years after it was shuttered) it makes a wee grand total of three operational distilleries in Campbeltown, once the Victorian capital of whisky-making in Scotland!
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.
