Kilkerran Heavily Peated Batch 4 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.

For Batch No 4 of the Heavily Peated Kilkerran Series the distillery has used whisky drawn from 80% ex-bourbon casks, as well as 20% ex-sherry casks.

    Nose:   Scorched malt, heather honey, bonfire smoke with accompanying toasted marshmallow.

    Taste:    Sea spray salinity runs all the way through it, joined by waves of brown sugar, caraway, and oak.

    Finish:    Lots of dry smoke notes stick around on the finish.
