Color
Pale straw
Nose

Trockener Holzrauch, mineralisch, zitrusfruchtige Apfelnoten drängeln sich vorbei, wenn man länger verharrt, wird die Zitrussüße immer stechender und dominanter, mit Wasser wird er super cremig, nun kommen Saftorangen, der Holzrauch ist völlig weg

Taste

Viel Druck vom Alkohol, dann direkt die mineralischen und salzigen Aromen, leicht bitter, dabei aber unglaublich säuerlich wird cremiger mit der Zeit, Wasser bringt hier ebenfalls Orangen zum Vorschein, als Orangenschalen würde ich es hier identifizieren 

Finish

Der Holzrauch kommt wieder durch, dann nun eher Zitrusbitterkeit, Wasser macht den Abgang cremig und weniger scharf 

Comments

Wahnsinns Malt für den Preis!! 

Ein Campbeltown-Paradebeispiel =)

From the distillery:

Nose - The aroma from the lightly peated barley is apparent from the off and some of the green apples which are becoming a feature of Kilkerran are also present. This whisky is like a favourite dessert, rhubarb crumble, with scents of stewed rhubarb, vanilla and all butter shortbread.

Palate - There’s an earthiness and saltiness, exactly what you want to taste in a Campbeltown dram. This is combined with icing sugar and puff candy which gives a sweetness to the whisky, along with milk chocolate and walnut flavours.

Finish - The peat remains, along with a sootiness, pencil shavings and a liquorice-influenced maltiness.
