Campbeltown, SCOTLAND
$299. 00
$3588.00 Dozen
ABV: 46%

The sister to Campbeltown's darling Springbank, Kilkerran from Glengyle Distillery has been taking the world quietly by storm. The latest 16 year old was released in August 2022 in the UK and comes matured in a mix of 70% ex-bourbon and 30% ex-sherry casks. As with past bottlings, you can expect a lovely sweet maltiness on the palate to go along with the delicate maritime and dunnage floor notes which Campbeltown whiskies are known for.  *All Kilkerran whiskies now arrive without presentation tubes or boxes. According to distillery management, “It is our intention to reduce the amount of packaging we use across our group of companies, from Springbank and Kilkerran to William Cadenhead Ltd, and that any we do use is produced and procured as sustainably as possible." 46% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.

Other reviews... "It’s not sitting towards any extremes of any bandwidths anywhere. It’s not simple whisky, but it’s not bewilderingly complex either, although I will suggest that it’s probably Glengyle’s most ‘dense’ (of their 46% range at least). I’m almost halfway through the bottle already (with sharing!) and I look forward to every glass — how will it be tonight? Sweet? Savoury? Briny? Oily? Elegant? Because it sits somewhere in the middle of many spectrums, it can be any and all of those things. I know what you’re thinking, if we keep talking these whiskies up we’ll never see them; they’ll continue to be hoarded and stored everywhere. But please read my words: I  encourage that it’s opened and enjoyed, tasted, known. I would also love other whisky producers to pause and look at Glengyle — which is, for all intents and purposes, a new distillery — and ask themselves, ‘How hard can it be?’ Honest, good whisky. Made well, priced fairly, sold faithfully. Once tasted, it‘ll never collect dust — or make floors creak — anywhere." -

Notes from the producers... Nose – A citrus element familiar to Kilkerran whiskies kicks off this dram in notes of orange and opal fruits. Notes of turkish delight, foam bananas and strawberry laces develop, along with a malty, cereal note. Palate – Sweet with a soft hint of peat smoke, there are notes of pear drops, sherbet, toffee apples, toasted marshmallows, and an orange note carried through from the nose. Finish – A dry finish with notes of liquorice, peppermint and peat smoke.
