Kilkerran,

Heavily Peated Batch 3

59.7% ABV

 

The latest release in the Peat in Progress series, launched in April 2020: the Kilkerran Heavily Peated Batch n°3.

This cracking Campbeltown whisky is matured in a combination of 80% ex-bourbon casks and 20% ex-sherry, bottled at cask strength. It is half a year older than Batch #2.  

 

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Roasted apples and poached pears, dusty oak furniture, a hint of espresso and some dried peels, vanilla cheesecake, rhubarb and custard sweets with delicate peat smoke..

Palate: Opens up with salted caramel sweetness, before smoke and oatcakes develop. There's a bit of flaky pastry dipped in coffee, sweet salted caramel, and another helping of cooked orchard fruit. The peat is prolific yet well integrated.

Finish: Long and creamy. Sweet, drying smoke remains on the finish.
