Kilkerran 12 Year Old 700ml
This is the first expression outside of the distillery's popular 'Work in Progress' series and is a watershed moment for the team in Campbeltown. The nose and palate are both so distinctly 'Campbeltown' - slightly frosty (dusty old warehouses) and spiced to start, with hints of dried fruit, malt biscuits and a lemon/citric note. Throughout there is a gentle waft of peat smoke from the barley, and a sea-side saltiness that comes and goes. A distinctive style of whisky that is old-fashioned but timeless - an absolutely cracking dram."
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.
