Kilkerran Single Malt is a lightly peated, double distilled whisky which is non-chilled filtered and a natural colour.
Maturated in 100% Re-charred Oloroso Sherry Casks and bottled at 57.1%.
Net weight: 1.5kg
Nose: Waves of smoky bacon and sticky glazed ham are followed by dried fruit
characteristics that give way to soft peat smoke.
Palate: Rich, fruity and spicy. Notes of ginger loaf, fresh ripe cherries and
sultanas. Hints of cloves, dark chocolate and a refreshing menthol note.
Finish: A lasting finish of nostalgic buttered brown toast, espresso and ashy
peat smoke. A lasting, earthy character reminiscent of the distillery’s dunnage
