Tasting Notes and Technical Description:

Visual Appearance:
Kilkerran Heavily Peated features a warm golden hue, indicative of its aging process in both bourbon and sherry casks. The liquid is full-bodied, hinting at the complex tasting journey that awaits.

Nose (Aroma):
Upon nosing, the whisky releases an intriguing array of scents. The initial wave is a bold smokiness, followed by maritime notes of seaweed and salt. This is beautifully complemented by sweet undertones of vanilla and citrus fruits, revealing the whisky's multi-layered complexity.

Palate (Taste):
The palate does not stray far from the promises made by the nose. The robust peat smokiness forms the backbone, but it is elegantly balanced by flavors of lemon zest, green apples, and subtle briny notes. The influence of the sherry casks comes through as well, adding a touch of dried fruit and spice.

The finish is long-lasting and robust, featuring a harmonious blend of smoky and sweet flavors. Notes of medicinal iodine and brine fade away, leaving a lingering sweetness of honey and dried fruits.

The mouthfeel is rich and oily, further enhancing the complexity of flavors and making for a deeply satisfying sipping experience.

Third Base Market & Spirits Perspective:

Kilkerran Heavily Peated is a whisky that represents the revival and resilience of the Campbeltown region. It's a truly contemplative dram that is equally appealing to the aficionado and the adventurous newbie.

Pairing Suggestions:
With its strong peat profile and oceanic notes, this whisky pairs excellently with hearty foods like a steak or even smoked fish. Its complexity can even stand up to blue cheese or rich desserts like dark chocolate.

This whisky is a bit of a rarity and sought-after for its robust peatiness balanced with elegant fruit and spice. You can find it at Third Base Market & Spirits, but it often moves quickly off the shelves.

Kilkerran Heavily Peated offers a masterful complexity that will engage and challenge your palate. Whether you are a fan of peaty whiskies or simply looking to expand your horizons, this Campbeltown marvel is an unforgettable experience.

This is all kinds of wonderful!

Aroma is heavy peat smoke, a little charred wood and a bit of something sweet.
Oily peat with a soft heather fire that gently fades. Very complex, not simply a ‘Peat Bomb.’
