    Aroma: open, fresh, sea air, menthol, iodine, fresh seafood, minerals, wet lime, stone powder, coal dust, all this in combination with a light sweetness of honey, wild flowers, vanilla baking and canned peaches. In the background there is a slight smoke from the extinguished fire, burnt wood, some hints of rubber or rubber.

    Taste: sweet-spicy, honey, roasted malt, vanilla pastries, spices and spices, lemon peel, many minerals, chalk, highly mineralized water, fruitiness in the form of some tropical fruits (exotic juice), charred wood, light smoked smoked notes.

    Finish: slightly longer than average, oily, damped spices, honey, dried citrus peel, abundance of mineral tones, distinctly salty on the tongue, activated charcoal, smoked meats, light woody tannins.

    The result: a very good molt from Glengyle, with a powerful fresh mineral-sea aroma, for which taste and finish do not keep up a bit, but also show a good level for 12 years. Light phenolicity sets the additional texture and depth, the smoke here completely goes behind the rest. In general, again a very good standard whisky from Campbeltown, I will definitely buy it periodically.
    I ran into him with Springbank 10, they have a lot in common, Kilkerran is more mineral, a little more spicy, Springbank is caramel-toffee, yet Springbank likes a little more, but this is probably pure flavor.
