Nearly two centuries ago, the town of Campbeltown, located on a narrow peninsula in southwest Scotland, was considered the whisky capital of the world. Passengers arriving by sea at Campbeltown Loch, nestled between Macringan's Point and the rocky island of Davaar, were greeted with the sails and masts of the herring fishing fleet and the smoking chimneys of nearly thirty different distilleries that called Campbeltown home. Two hundred years later, Campbeltown Loch is considerably quieter and only three chimneys continue to billow smoke — each acting as a beacon for an industry that, at one point, dominated the peninsula.
Glengyle Distillery was founded in Campbeltown in 1872 by William Mitchell. After five decades of distilling malt whisky, the distillery was forced to close its doors as a result of Prohibition. In 2004, Hedley Wright — the great-great nephew of William Mitchell and the chairman of J&A Mitchell & Co Ltd. — purchased the distillery and equipped it with a pair of modified stills formerly used by the Ben Wyvis Distillery in Invergordon before reopening its doors.
Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
On the nose, Kilkerran Heavily Peated Single Malt Scotch Whisky really impresses with notes of cooked apples, campfire embers, and oat cakes. The palate is inviting and offers flavors of orchard fruit, green olive, salted butter, and cinnamon sweetness, culminating in a long finish with peaty notes.
