Glengyle Distillery Kilkerran 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml) - 2023 Release

Campbeltown, SCOTLAND
$150. 00
$1800.00 Dozen
ABV: 46%

The culmination of six "Work In Progress" releases is this core bottling from the Glengyle Distillery: a lightly peated and non-chill filtered 12 year old malt matured in a combination of 70% Bourbon casks and 30% Sherry casks. If the intention has been to create an accessible all-rounder that appeals to a wide audience, then this certainly succeeds. Offering a beautiful integration of aromas and flavours ranging from rich cereals, light sea spray freshness, a touch of lanolin and even a farmyard earthiness in the thread of peat stitching the whole together, it straddles the breadth of flavours we’ve enjoyed in the “Work in Progress” series, only delivered in a softer package. Because Kilkerran run just one bottling per annum, allocations will be ongoing - even though this is now part of the core range. 46% Alc./Vol. *All Kilkerran whiskies now arrive without presentation tubes or boxes.

Notes from the producers... Nose – Notes of sweet confectionery introduce this dram, with Turkish delight, pear drops and marzipan apparent on the nose. There are hints of subtle peat smoke, like toasted marshmallows by a campfire. Palate – Initially zesty with citrus notes of lemon cheesecake and an oiliness typical of a Campbeltown whisky. Peat smoke, leather bound books and peppery, spicy notes develop over time, along with sweet sticky toffee pudding. Finish – The peat smoke carries through to the finish in campfire embers, with sweet hints of pecan pie and butterscotch.
