Age: 12 Year Old.
The Kilkerran Work in Progress Series was completed with the release of WIP 7 sherry and WIP 7 bourbon in 2015. The current Kilkerran bottling is a 12 year old Kilkerran Single Malt. This is the first core release for Glengyle distillery since it re-opened in 2004 and is available now. It’s been a long wait, 12 years but worth it.
Nose: oak notes are dominant, followed by toasted marshmallows and dried fruit pudding, as well as cherries, marzipan and a hint of peat.
Palate: initially fruity with citrus notes and orange peel, after this: vanilla, butterscotch, honeycomb and digestive biscuits can all be tasted and enjoyed.
Finish: velvet and smooth with lemon meringue, to conclude, there’s an oiliness and a saltiness that you’d expect from a Campbeltown dram.
