The 3rd Batch of the much-anticipated release of Kilkerran heavily peated.
Cask Maturation : 80% Ex-Bourbon 20% Ex-Sherry
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 smoky 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 the 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.
