Kilkerran Work In Progress 4

Kilkerran Work In Progress 4

Official bottling 
Single malt - Campbeltown
46% ABV

Nose: Bananas, iodine, chillies, carrot cake, grass, apple juice, hints of leather.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, slippery, airy, loose, static.
Tasting: Bitter sweet. Vanilla, bananas, apple juice, lemon juice, hints of carrot cake, hints of cinnamon.
Finish: Short. Cookie dough, vanilla, bananas, apple juice, carrot cake.


These early releases showcasing maturation progress are a bit hit and miss - of course the bottler will want to show good progress, but occasionally later releases don't quite live up to the promise of earlier releases. I'm happy to report that this Glengyle isn't one of them. I like the cinnamon carrot cakeyness of the whisky, and although it's a bit one dimensional and not very complex, that's probably to do with its young age rather than the quality of the spirit. Quite tasty, this.


I like this.
