This is the visitor center bottling from Glengyle Distillery, aka Kilkerran, in Campbeltown. The good folks at J. & A. Mitchell & Co, aka Springbank, Glengyle and Cadenhead, in Campbeltown, were keen to take part in our 2018 KWM Whisky Advent Calendar, and this is what they came up with.
We didn’t get full-sized bottles, you have to go to the distillery for those, but we do have a surplus of 50mls, and we couldn’t be more pleased. The whisky is only available at the distillery, and KWM!

Andrew’s Tasting Note
Nose: vanilla custard and tapioca pudding; dried lemon and honeydew melons; white chocolate marzipan and fresh cut flowers; gentle malt with a hint of clean smoke and sea breeze.
Palate: creamy, malty and floral; building clean peat smoke and more sea breeze; more marzipan and building tarry smoke; a touch of lemon and melons.
Finish: creamy, malty and floral; the finish is medium in length, oily and coating.
Comment: there is a lot more smoke here than I expected, but that is far from disappointing; a love the batch variation found in both Springbank and Kilkerran whiskies; this one is not mind-blowingly complex, but it is very drinkable!”
