Kilkerran 12 Year Old 700ML
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.
The culmination of six “Work In Progress” releases is this first 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. At this stage the distillery is running one bottling production per annum. This first edition saw 5000 cases for the world market.
Tasting note: If the intention has been to create an accessible all-rounder that appeals to a wide audience, then this certainly succeeds on all levels. A beautiful integration of aroma and flavour: the rich cereals, the light sea spray freshness, a touch of lanolin – even a farmyard earthiness in the thread of peat stitching the whole together. Straddles the breadth of flavours we’ve enjoyed in the “Work in Progress” releases, only delivered in a softer package. 46% Alc./Vol.
