Nose: Spicy buns! Cardamon, cinnamon, heather honey, butter toffee with a slight savory note of toffee popcorn.
Palate: Like a silky smooth melted honey comb chocolate bar. Fruitiness present as crisp and very sweet red apples. Incredibly rich and buttery, like gingerbread cookie dough, yet fresh with hints of clover and freshly cut summers grass.

Kilkerran Single Malt Whiskey
William Mitchell established Glengyle Distillery in 1872 in Campbeltown at the foot of the Kintyre Peninsular. When it closed in 1925 all the stock of malt whiskey was sold and all the equipment removed. However, the surviving buildings were purchased by Hedley Wright proprietor of Springbank Distillery and a decedent of William Mitchell, in 2000 who re-furbished and re-opened Glengyle Distillery in 2004. Now equipped with two small stills and operating for one or two months per year to produce Glengyle single malt whiskey called Kilkerran. Following regular releases of Work in Progress the Kilkerran 12 Year Old made its appearance in 2016.
