KILKERRAN HEAVILY PEATED BATCH 8 SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY 58.4% ABV
Kilkerran is the name that was chosen for the single malt produced at Mitchell’s Glengyle Distillery, there are two reasons for this. Firstly, because the name Glengyle is already used for a blended Highland malt and Mitchell’s Glengyle Ltd were not able to purchase the rights to use that name. They also wished to avoid any possible confusion between the newest single malt to come from the Campbeltown region and a pre-existing blended Highland malt.
Secondly, and more importantly, Mitchell’s Glengyle Ltd are very proud to be continuing and adding to the great Campbeltown Distilling tradition and the choice of name reflects that. Kilkerran is derived from the Gaelic ‘Ceann Loch Cille Chiarain’ which is the name of the original settlement where Saint Kerran had his religious cell and where Campbeltown now stands. Kilkerran is thought to be a suitable name for a new Campbeltown malt since it was unusual for the old Campbeltown distilleries to be called after a Glen, a custom more usually associated with the Speyside region.
This whisky has a nose of fresh apples, mixed seeds, strawberry laces and confectionary sweets. A smokiness that would remind you of a smouldering campfire and toasted marshmallows. This leads beautifully onto a palate of Grilled fruits, cooking popcorn, caramelised brown sugar, puff pastry and peppermint creams which sounds an absolute dream to me. On the finish this whisky develops into toasted oats, salted beef, butter, parma ham and crushed vanilla pods. Delightful.
