Kilkerran 8yo Cask Strength Port & Sherry Editions
With the almost palpable releases from Glengyle Distillery due for release on the 1st of March 2022, we thought we’d share some tasting notes on the new Sherry Cask Whisky and their first ever release of Kilkerran matured in Port casks.
Kilkerran 8yo Sherry Cask Matured
Aromatic citrus notes kick off this dram, with hints of orange peel and marmalade on the nose. A peppery,
spicy note develops over time.
Rich on the palate, with notes of barbequed meats hinting toward the peat smoke influence.
There is a sweetness apparent
in notes of sticky honey glaze
and demerara sugar.
The subtle touch of peat smoke continues in the finish with notes of soot and burnt embers.
Kilkerran 8yo Port Cask Matured
A delicate introduction to this dram with an earthiness apparent from the offset, opening up to notes of red currants and parma ham.
A richness develops on the palate with fruit notes reminiscent of dark fruit gateau and cherry, along with
hints of chocolate.
The earthiness from the nose carries through to the finish along with a peppery note to round off this malt.
