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.Tasting Notes (1)

Producer's Tasting Notes
Oak notes are dominant, followed by toasted marshmallows and dried fruit pudding, as well as cherries, marzipan and a hint of peat.
Initially fruity with citrus notes and orange peel, after this: vanilla, butterscotch, honeycomb and digestive biscuits can all be tasted and enjoyed.
Velvet and smooth with lemon meringue, to conclude, there’s an oiliness and a saltiness that you’d expect from a Campbeltown dram.
This is a sublime scotch, well worth the purchase price. One can taste the sherry cask. I also tasted honey notes in addition to what was indicated in the tasting notes.
We tried this whisky at a local whisky tasting. There were eight of us who all enjoy single malts and have our own collections. Of the seven different Scottish whisky's we tried, mostly from the different regions, for many in the group this Kilkerren came out overall favourite.
I'm no expert but I love it.
Quite wood-driven and a bit smoky. The salted caramel in the palate is what makes it pleasant, together with some dried apricots. Finish is fairly long but not at all complex. I get some Springbank vibes, but also Deanston Virgin Oak with that up front wood. All in all a nice dram for the price, and would order again, but don't go expecting miracles. 79 in my book.
