Kilkerran 12 Year Old Bottling Note

12-year-old Kilkerran single malt from Campbeltown's Glengyle Distillery, which reopened back in 2004. The Kilkerran 12 Year Old is lightly peated and non-chill filtered, and has been matured in a classic combination of bourbon casks sherry casks.

Tasting Note by The Producer

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.

Buy it
Buy it this is the best balanced whisky that you can actually buy,although,it is sweeter than you will think for a campbeltown whisky at least you can get a bottle, unlike its more harder to find siblings.One to savour

Wow, I really like this one. I’m usually a peated Islay drinker, but took a punt on this. Although very light on the peat, it’s extremely complex and just utterly delicious for the price. I’ll be getting another bottle of this the second I finish the first.

Tut Tut!
Marvellous stuff. Rich, chewy, briny & soft n' gentle peat smoke, however it's up 11 quid from last time it was available here when I bought a btl back in Sep 21. Tut Tut!

Still it didn't stop me buying a btl this time round lol.

I missed getting the Kilkerran 16 & Springbank 10 this time round ;( but I did manage to get my hands on a btl of Longrow ;)

Got the nose, particularly the marzipan. Loved the palate feel & taste, v citrus and the salty oily end was significant and enjoyable

Just Gorgeous
Sat in the Montcalm hotel bar in London pouring through the ample whiskey menu I discovered this beautiful gem of a whiskey. Initially picked for its lower price, it more than matches the more expensive ones for it it so flavoursome and suited to real enjoyment

Love it, complex and subtle
I'm not a connoisseur so won't give you tasting notes, but I've tried quite a few and like many to varying degrees - this is now in my top 5 for the affordable under-£50 bracket. Subtle & sort of light, yet complex and flavoursome, and a nice bit of peat without being OTT. I've actually started putting a very small ice cube in some of these stronger drams and it works!

Shows great potential
If this is what their 12 is like I cant wait to get my hands on a btl of 16. It's a bit rough & ready but shows great potential, give it water & time in the glass & be patient.
It's like a 1/2 way house between Springbank 10 & the new nas Longrow.

The people working at Glengyle Distillery sure know what they’re doing! This whisky is an absolute work of art. Light, fresh and full of flavour.. I tried it for the first time a few days ago and it has instantly become one of my favourite whiskies. Would highly recommend
