New scotch for tasting in Warsaw and Jastrzębia Góra


Kilkerran  8 years old, Cask Strength, Port Cask Matured /57,9%/ – Glengyle Distillery founded by William Mitchell operated in Campbeltown from 1872 to 1925. Over 75 years later Hedley Wright, the chairman of J&A Mitchell & Co. (the owners of Springbank) and great-great nephew of William Mitchell bought the old buildings and made the re-opening of Mitchell’s Glengyle Distillery in 2004 a reality. Glengyle single malt was launched in 2009 as Kilkerran and has been released in limited quantities (after increasing production in 2020, the distillery uses roughly 15% of its capacity producing 100,000 liters of spirit per annum). Kilkerran 8 years old Cask Strength was introduced in the spring of 2017; the whisky was aged exclusively in ex-bourbon barrels and earned fantastic reviews. In the early 2020 we received two sibling versions, the one presented here comes from ex-port casks.

Nose: pretty winey, black cherries, strawberries, plums, mocha, nougat, balsamic vinaigrette, forest floor, moist hay, mixed dried herbs, touch of leather and peat smoke.
Palate: pretty smoky, cherry pie, plum butter, milk chocolate, raisins, caramel, toffee, dash of black pepper and vanilla, hay and oak tannins.
Finish: pretty long and spicy, with notes of milk chocolate, nutmeg, black pepper, plums, oak and distant whiff of smoke.
