Kilkerran 12 Year Old Bottling Note

After 12 years and a bundle of Work In Progress bottlings, the first core release of single malt Scotch whisky from the Glengyle Distillery after reopening in 2004 is ready! The Kilkerran 12 Year Old is lightly peated and non-chill filtered, and has been matured in a combination of 70% bourbon casks and 30% 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.

Kilkerran 12 Year Old Reviews

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

Distinct Quality

Not disappointed

Everything you would expect quality wise. Deliciously fruity and a slight peaty note which reminds me of springbank. Thankfully non chill filtered.

Excellent value for money

This was my first purchase of a light peated whisky. It has changed my opinion positively. Lovely sweet taste with obvious honey and vanilla flavour, one of only a few that I will drink straight. I only hope more appears in stock soon. TJ

Nice Campbeltown flavour, then you get the mild, peaty kick. Excellent value. Almost as good as Springbank 10. I've been telling all of my whisky drinking friends about Kilkerran. I'm glad I took a punt on it.

This is great whisky

For a whisky of this age, and at this price, it really delivers. Light peat smoke with a salty caramel edge and that oily mouth feel, absolutely delicious!!
This is, in my opinion, still an underrated whisky. I'm sure its reputation will grow over time, but the fact that you already have to hunt around for a bottle is very telling. Really good quality whisky, definitely a worth while purchase.
I'm excited about what the future will bring from the Glengyle distillery, they clearly know what they're doing when it comes to quality whisky.
