Kilkerran 12 years old campbeltown Single Malt Whisky 46%
Maybe this is the whiskey that gives you the most single malt for the money. This is a bottling from Campbeltown's "forgotten" third distillery, Glengyle. Glengyle opened in 2004 under the leadership of the acclaimed Mitchell family, who also own Springbank and Cadenheads. After several younger bottlings in the "Work in Progress" series, this 12-year-old came on the market in 2016, which can be considered Kilkerran's "beginner bottling". It is certainly also a delicious whiskey that offers all the flavors associated with Campbeltown - light peat smoke and some "funk". The whiskey is stored in a mixture of 70% bourbon casks and 30% sherry casks, and has an alcohol strength of 46%, while of course neither cold filtration nor artificial color has been used. It offers nut aromas of marzipan and hazelnuts along with honey and cherries. The taste is creamy, with notes of gingerbread and caramel along with a little citrus and the aforementioned "funk". The aftertaste really shows that this is a true Campbeltown whiskey, with salt, peat, and a earthy taste that lasts a long time.
