This month’s malt of the month is the new Kilkerran 12 years old for only €41,- ex. VAT.
Personally I love this new edition very much. It reminds me of an old style Springbank from back in day. This is what Serge Valentin, internationally acclaimed whisky aficionado and Malt Maniac had to say about this lovely dram, scoring it a spot on 90/100 points:

That’s right, the first ‘regular’ expression of Glengyle/Kilkerran, after the various ‘WIPs’ that have almost all been very convincing. Although I preferred the bourbon versions, but that’s a matter of taste. Love the no-fuss label by the way.


Distillery note:

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
