Made at the Glengyle distillery in Campbeltown, Kilkerran is one of the few single malts that does not bear the name of its distillery.

Kilkerran 8 Year Old Single Malt Whisky is lightly peated. Entirely aged in ex-sherry casks, Kilkerran 8 Year Old Cask Distillate reveals a unique and intense flavour profile.

Bottled at natural strength (56.9°), this whisky reveals a nose where peat envelops juicy fruit. On aeration, the smoke takes over to envelop vanilla, caramel and black cherry in turn.

The palate is well balanced, with red fruits dominating the peat, which then asserts itself with flavours of cocoa, deliciously acidulated by the lemon. The finish is a real empyreumatic ballet: sandalwood, burnt wood, peat, smoke and iodine complete this dense aromatic sequence.
