Kilkerran Single Malt is the product of Mitchell’s Glengyle Distillery, re-opened in 2004, after closing in 1925.
Lightly peated and non-chill-filtered, with no added colouring, the 12 year old is matured 70% in ex-Bourbon casks and 30% in ex-Sherry casks.
Currently limited to one per customer
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
