Kilkerran Peated #1 Bottling Note

The whiskies from the Kilkerran range produced at Cambeltown's Glengyle distillery have been impressive indeed, and this one continues that theme. Kilkerran Heavily Peated is, as you might expect, an enjoyably smoky expression that should convince any Islay enthusiast that peaty treats don't just come from one Hebridean island.

Benromach Contrasts Peat

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Cooked apples, campfire embers and a whiff of oat cakes.

Palate: More orchard fruit - now with a citrus hint developing. Green olive, biscuit dough, salted butter and cinnamon sweeties.

Finish: Meaty malt and honey. Lingering peat smoke dryness.

Kilkerran Heavily Peated (Batch 1) Reviews

A contradictory delight

First thing that hits on the nose is the abv, but as you back off it developed into a lovely smoke. Petrichor and campfire embers. The notes are soft but they fill your nose

Palate wise; if there is such a thing as a salt pastry, brine drizzled, citrus pie, served only with an ocean breeze.... then this is it. The savoury hits first, accompanied by buttery, salted short crust pasty. Then blood orange follows with a briny salt water olive juice.

Sounds contradictory but somehow works really well

The finish is nose filling. As the palate disperses, the smoke burst into my nose leaving me with very similar notes to the initial nose. Then I went back for more

A fabulous bottling

One of the fascinating things about Scotch Whisky is the differing opinions and personal likes and dislikes.

Unlike the first poster - i find this expression - fantastic.
I too am a fan of the Kilkerran 8 and the 12 , but i find this to be the best.

Plenty of peat for my taste and my shelf always has Big Peat, Ardbeg, Laphroaig, Peat Chimney and smokehed open.

Warm and full of flavor - even though it is young (just squeaking through at 3 year old would be my guess). Toffee on the nose.

A very flavousome and peaty whisky at a great price.

well done Kilkerran - 3 bottles down and i keep going back to this.

Not so good

I'll start by saying that usually I like Kilkerran: I enjoyed a couple of the Work in Progress bottlings, I have a bottle of the 12 and 8 yo and find them really tasty. I also enjoy peaty whiskies and always have Laphroaig and Ardbeg etc in my collection. However, this whisky just doesn't impress me at all - it just seems so ... unfinished. I was very disappointed when I first tried it so I left for a while and went back to it periodically but it just hasn't got any better. I keep thinking .... where's the peat in this 'heavily peated' dram? I'm sorry to be writing a negative review about Kilkerran but, frankly, this shouldn't have been released in my opinion - it's doing the distillery a dis-service.
