Tasting Notes

The powerful cask-strength offering from the excellent Glengyle distillery is one of the most complex and authentic malts on the shelf. Aged exclusively in ex-bourbon barrels for 8 years, this wonderful Kilkerran exemplifies the wild diversity this tiny distillery can offer. The reason every other distiller in Scotland doesn't make whisky this way is efficiency, but also consistency. Each small batch of Kilkerran can have a very distinct style and that's why we love them. This naked expression of a truly authentic single malt offers even the most developed palate something exciting. It loves water but doesn't need a ton to find it's best balance. Serge from Whisky Fun liked it, "Nose: it’s always quite striking that Kilkerran would be so close to Springbank, style-wise. Wet chalk, mud, soot, old tools, grandpa’s garage, fern, carbon, pine liqueur, chartreuse, tar… With water: amazing muddy, herbal sootiness. Leaven, new baguette, yeast, mushrooms… Mouth (neat): immaculately perfect young malt, one of the best they make beyond Hadrian’s Wall. Shoe polish, lime juice, green olives, earth, candlewax, a touch of yuzu… Oh go to hell, Kilkerran! With water: and stay there! Finish: long, getting more lemony, which just works in any finish." 91 points
