46% | 70cl | NCF | Campbeltown
The first core release from the Glengyle Distillery, who share the same owners as Springbank, the Kilkerran 12 Year Old is a lightly peated and non-chill filtered whisky that been matured in a combination of 70% bourbon casks and 30% sherry casks.
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.
