Kilkerran 12 Year Old Whisky
After 12 years, the first core product has been released from Mitchell’s Glengyle Distillery. Mitchell’s Glengyle Distillery re-opened in 2004, following closure in 1925. It's a long wait, but worth it!
Kilkerran Single Malt is a lightly peated, double distilled whisky which is not chill filtered and has no added colouring.
Maturation Recipe - 70% bourbon casks & 30% sherry casks
Net weight: 1.6kg
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.
Kilkerran Single Malt is 100% made in Campbeltown, from barley to bottle at Mitchell’s Glengyle Distillery. Re-opened in 2004 after originally operating from 1872-1925, Mitchell’s Glengyle is under the ownership of Mr Hedley Wright, chairman of Springbank Distillery and descendant of Glengyle’s founder William Mitchell.
