Kilkerran Heavily Peated Single Malt Whisky - Batch 3
The long-awaited Kilkerran Heavily Peated Single Malt Batch 3 is finally here! Each of these batches has sold out very quickly and we're expecting this one to go quickly too.
Batch 3 has a malty, cereal character and more of a coastal influence than the previous editions.
Matured in 80% Ex-Bourbon, 20% Ex-Sherry casks.
Bottled at 59.7%.
Net weight: 1.6kg
Nose: The nose is bright with notes of citrus and smoked applewood. A true maritime coastal influence and hints of blackened, toasted marshmallow and tropical fruit sweetness. As ever, that familiar dunnage warehouse funk hangs in the background.
Palate: Initially biscuity and buttery, flavours of liquorice and fennel developing later. Sweet, fruity peat smoke gives way to drier smoky peat, evoking that real, full smokey atmosphere of the working kiln room. A signature apple strudel note makes its way through and lemon sherbet flavours develop with every sip.
Finish: Long, well integrated peat smoke carries through. It's remarkably complex throughout with heavy peat smoke not overpowering. A malty, cereal character and more of a coastal influence coming through in this batch in comparison to previous editions.
