It feels great, finally getting to write the words ‘age statement’ next to a Kilkerran Single Malt Whisky. I think we have all been waiting for this and now it has finally arrived.
Releasing a number of Work In Progress bottling’s since 2009 the Glengyle distillery has been slowly maturing its new make spirit in ex-bourbon barrels (70%) and ex-sherry barrels (30%) for 12 years to create a new member to its standard expressions. A vatted single malt excitingly smooth, delicious and well worth the wait.
Does this now make the WIP bottling’s a collectable? Most probably.
Hold on to your hat folks as this one is an absolute belter.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose: Inviting and homely straight away. Ripe green apples, herbal sweetness and rich in sugar glazed apricots.
Palate: It’s nuts! Rich oily walnuts, continuing the wholesome notes from the nose. More a work in perfection than work in progress, with a great delicate balance between the sweeter fruit notes and lively spices. It is un-mistakenly Campbeltown, so comforting and rich. It gets sweeter and stickier with a touch of water.
Finish: This dram is not for the impatient! Treat it like a cryptic crossword, give it time and enjoy this fabulous Campbeltown spirit.
