Kilkerran 12 Year Single Malt Scotch


Kilkerran is the flagship whisky made by the Glengyle Distillery, Springbank's sister distillery just down the road in Campbeltown. Reopened just a handful of years ago in 2004 after 80 years of being shuttered, it makes for a wee grand total of three operational distilleries in Campbeltown, once the undisputed capital of whisky-making in Scotland. The 12 year is aged primarily in ex-bourbon barrels, with a small portion of sherry matured whisky as well. It is bottled without chill filtration at 46% abv. 

On the nose, oak notes are dominant, followed by toasted marshmallows and dried fruit pudding, as well as cherries, marzipan and a hint of peat. The palate is initially fruity with citrus notes and orange peel, and after: vanilla, butterscotch, honeycomb and digestive biscuits can all be subtly detected. The finish is velvety and easygoing with lemon meringue, along with an oiliness and a saltiness that you’d expect from a Campbeltown dram.
