|OVERVIEW||First core release of single malt Scotch whisky from the Glengyle Distillery after reopening in 2004, Kilkerran 12 year old is lightly peated and non-chill filtered. Matured in a combination of bourbon casks (70%) and Sherry casks, this expression opens to oaky notes, orange peel and marzipan.|
The peat aroma from the lightly peated barley is apparent from the off and some of the green apples which are becoming a feature of Kilkerran are also present. This whisky is like a favourite dessert, rhubarb crumble, stewed rhubarb, vanilla and all butter shortbread.
There’s an earthiness and saltiness, exactly what you want to taste in a Campbeltown dram. This is combined with icing sugar and puff candy which gives a sweetness to the whisky, along with milk chocolate and walnut flavours.
The peat remains, along with a sootiness, pencil shavings and a liquorice-influenced maltiness.
