Tasting Notes

Kilkerran 8 Year Old Cask Strength Producer Notes

Nose: This exquisite nose begins with a gentle hint of worn leather and pipe tobacco. Changing now to a much sweeter note with sponge cake, vanilla pods and clotted cream combining with some citrus and fruits in the form of key lime pie and green apple skins.

Palate: Good cask influence here with lots of sweetness from the bourbon casks. Golden syrup cake, banoffee pie and toasted marshmallows just some of the desserts you could find in this dram.

Finish: The light peat becomes more apparent on the finish, along with an earthy dunnage note typical of Campbeltown whisky. This if followed by a herbal grassy note, marzipan and grape peel.
