Review: Kilkerran 9 Years Old Open Day 2015
Category: Campbeltown single malt scotch whisky
Origin: Glengyle Distillery
Bottling: J & A Mitchell
Cost: £45 for 35cl
What they say:
A half bottle of Kilkerran 9 year old Single Malt, matured in Rum casks and release at the Glengyle Distillery Open Day during the 2015 Campbeltown Malt’s Festival.
What I say:
From Moxies’s Tasting with Moxie – a Festivus for the rest of us.
Antique/refractive gold (3/20), oily thick streaky legs
Vanilla cream, light zesty citrus, pencil shavings, new wood, icing sugar sweetness, crème brulee, cane sugar, spices, cinnamon, a little cider vinegar fumes on hot potato chips
Rich oily and buttery, lemon butter pancakes, sweet and spiced, white pepper, melba toast, demerara or cane sugar, crème brulee, cigarette smoke, starts to thin in the mouth at the end
Long, sweet, spiced woody demerara rum
This has a rich rummy sweetness but just can’t quite carry this the whole distance, definitely a candied wood and whisky feel to this one.
Don’t take my word for it:
