Glengyle Distillery Kilkerran Heavily Peated Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml) - Batch 5
Batch 5 of Glengyle's sought-after peated expression comes matured in 85% Bourbon oak and 15% Sherry oak, so no change in the maturation regime. Despite the fact that bottles are probably going to be squirrelled away in collections, the question "is it as good as Batch 4?" is purely academic. At least one blogger describes #5 as the best to date, showing off how good younger Scottish whisky can really be. In his words, "Just f*****g exceptional." 57.7% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered. *All Kilkerran whiskies now arrive without presentation tubes or boxes.
Notes from the producers... Nose: Opens up to reveal citrus notes, vanilla cheesecake, rhubarb and custard sweets with delicate peat smoke. Palate: Freshly baked Bramley apple pie and sweet salted caramel. The peat is prolific yet well integrated. A fresh coastal influence evokes memories of a blustery, busy, sea sprayed harbour. Finish: Long and creamy. Notes of toasted oak and pencil shavings give way to a lasting sweet, fruity peat smoke.
