After 12 years and a bundle of Work In Progress bottlings, the first core release of single malt Scotch whisky from the Glengyle Distillery after reopening in 2004 is ready! The Kilkerran 12 Year Old is lightly peated and non-chill filtered, and has been matured in a combination of 70% bourbon casks and 30% Sherry casks.

Tasting Notes

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.

What some of our whisky enthusiast friends have said about Kilkerran 12 Single Malt

Quote 1 “For a whisky of this age, and at this price, it really delivers. Light peat smoke with a salty caramel edge and that oily mouth feel, absolutely delicious!!
This is, in my opinion, still an underrated whisky. I’m sure its reputation will grow over time, but the fact that you already have to hunt around for a bottle is very telling. Really good quality whisky, definitely a worth while purchase.
I’m excited about what the future will bring from the Glengyle distillery, they clearly know what they’re doing when it comes to quality whisky.”

Quote 2 “It has similarities with the Springbank 10, but some different and interesting flavours going on. Like others have noted, it needs to sit in the glass a while to fully develop, but it’s very enjoyable indeed. Another fine example of the under-appreciated brilliance of Campeltown whiskies.”
