Kilkerran Heavily Peated batch 2 has been awaited with full anticipation. This second batch has been bottled at 60,9%. So easy to say it is going to be a powerfull dram, not for the faint of heart.
Kilkerran 12yo is a lightly peated whisky aged in combination of 70% bourbon casks and 30% sherry casks. The distillery was reopened in 2004 after being closed for almost 80 years, and this bottling has been eagerly anticipated ever since.
Nose: oak notes are dominant, followed by toasted marshmallows and dried fruit pudding, as well as cherries, marzipan and a hint of peat. Palate: initially fruity with citrus notes and orange peel, after this: vanilla, butterscotch,
honeycomb and digestive biscuits can all be tasted and enjoyed. Finish: velvet and smooth with lemon meringue, to conclude, there’s an oiliness and a saltiness that you’d expect from a Campbeltown dram
