Following hot on the heels of Kilkerran 12 year old, Mitchell’s Glengyle Distillery have now released this 8 year old cask strength offering, which looks like it'll be an ongoing annual release, similair to Springbank. Kilkerran 8 Year old cask strength is lightly peated, double distilled and bottled at 56.2% vol. Super excited about this latest release from Campbeltown.

Tasting Notes

Kilkerran 8 Year Old Cask Strength Tasting Notes

Nose: The peat aroma from the lightly peated barley is apparent from the off and some of the green apples which are becoming a feature of Kilkerran are also present. This whisky is like a favourite dessert, rhubarb crumble, stewed rhubarb, vanilla and all butter shortbread.

Palate: There’s an earthiness and saltiness, exactly what you want to taste in a Campbeltown dram. This is combined with icing sugar and puff candy which gives a sweetness to the whisky, along with milk chocolate and walnut flavours.

Finish: The peat remains, along with a sootiness, pencil shavings and a liquorice-influenced maltiness.
