A whisky from Campbeltown's 'newest, oldest distillery', Glengyle. Originally closed in 1925, Glengyle was eventually bought in 2000 by Hedley Wright, the great-great nephew of the distillery's original founder, and re-opened in 2004. Its whiskies are named Kilkerran both to avoid confusion with pre-existing whisky blends, and to pay homage to Saint Kerran, who had a religious cell in Campbeltown.
Kilkerran 8 Year Old is a lightly peated whisky with additional notes of green apples, rhubarb, sea salt, icing sugar and walnut.
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.
