Kilkerran Heavily Peated Batch 2 Single Malt Whisky

Mitchell’s Glengyle Distillery was founded by William Mitchell in 1872 and he ran the distillery as a sole proprietor before production ceased altogether in 1925. In November 2000, 75 years after Glengyle had last produced spirit, the buildings had been bought by a new company, Mitchell’s Glengyle Limited, headed by Mr Hedley Wright, chairman of J&A Mitchell and Co Ltd, and great-great nephew of William Mitchell, original founder of Glengyle. Kilkerran is the name that was chosen for the single malt produced at Mitchell’s Glengyle Distillery.
Kilkerran is derived from the Gaelic ‘Ceann Loch Cille Chiarain’ which is the name of the original settlement where Saint Kerran had his religious cell and where Campbeltown now stands.

Batch No 2 of the Heavily Peated Kilkerran Series weighs in at a robust 60.9% ABV and boasts plenty of meaty smoke notes all the way through.

    Nose:   Toasty malt with hints of baked earth and crispy bacon. Fresh citrus cuts through the richness.

    Taste:    Roasted apples, thyme, oily barley, waves of peppery smoke.

    Finish:    Softly spicy on the finish, with a touch of ginger.
