Kilkerran 12 Year Old Whisky
Please note that due to a new industry-leading environmental approach by Springbank Distillery, this bottling will no longer come with an outer tube or carton.
After 12 years, this was the first core product to be 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.
