KILKERRAN CASK STRENGTH 8-YEAR-OLD 57.1%
Mitchell’s Glengyle Distillery re-opened in 2004, following closure in 1925. Kilkerran Single Malt is a lightly peated, double distilled whisky which is non-chilled filtered with a natural colour that has been maturated in 100% Re-charred Oloroso Sherry Casks.
Nose: Waves of smoky bacon and sticky glazed ham are followed by dried fruit characteristics that give way to soft peat smoke.
Palate: Rich, fruity and spicy. Notes of a ginger loaf, fresh ripe cherries and sultanas. Hints of cloves, dark chocolate and a refreshing menthol note.
Finish: A lasting finish of nostalgic buttered brown toast, espresso and ashy peat smoke. A lasting, earthy character is reminiscent of the distillery’s dunnage warehousing.
