Kilkerran Heavily Peated Cask Strength Batch 5 Single Malt Scotch Whisky 2021 Release.
Batch No5 is the brand new release from the excellent Glengyle Distillery, heavily peated with a cask maturation of Ex-Bourbon 85%/ Ex-Sherry 15%.
Nose: Sweet, sooty peat smoke kicks off this malt,reminiscent of toasting marshmallows on a beach campfire. This combines with a maritime influence typical of Campbeltown whisky, with notes of salt and fishing creels.
Palate : The ash and soot from the nose is immediately apparent on the palate, along with digestive biscuits. This is balanced with sweet hints of fruit salad sweets, foam bananas and red apples.
Finish : Hints of red fruits and mineral notes round off this malt.
