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.
The long-awaited first core product from Kilkerran – a 12-year-old. This lightly peated whisky has been aged in combination of 70% bourbon casks and 30% sherry casks. The distillery was reopened in 2004 after being closed for almost 80 years, and this bottling has been eagerly anticipated ever since.
Whisky Resource Note
The Kilkerran Official Website has very limited / poorly updated information about their bottle releases.
The whisky page does give tasting notes as above but no further information.
