Kilkerran Heavily Peated 59. 3%. 3 years.
By this "Peat in Progress", let's be assured of even a batch per year until the arrival of a standard 12 years.
- Campbeltown area
- Single peated malt at 84ppm.
- 55% bourbon casks and 45% Sherry sherry casks.
- Glengyle distillery, producing 30,000 liters of pure alcohol per year while having the capacity to produce 100,000, but at capacity and reality, there is always a walk.
● The dress.
Gold yellow, beautiful brilliant reflections.
The tears are thick, fat and sticky. Beautiful drops.
● The drop on the palm.
It's tangy, pungent, cake batter and crushed cereal, grist, flour complete.
Chimney smoke and blond tobacco.
● The nose.
Primal, grilled bacon and pork belly on the barbecue. The cereal burned; It's cheese on the Fourme d'Ambert.
A marine weather too, a milky oyster, actually, lactic on the cake with yogurt and custard, the lemon meringue pie, then gently, comes the salted butter caramel and liquorice.
A light fruit, peach syrup? Some dried fruits.
Resinous wood, pine and its resin precisely, before giving way to the light smoke of burning wood.
A beautiful complexity seen at the age: Rolling tobacco and old leather.
The back of nose is buxom and very cereal, it manages to fish an anise seed.
It is well wrung out.
● The mouth.
It's bright, sweet and oily, sweet.
A beautiful heat well smoked and ashy.
Alcohol does no damage, it is simply perfectly mastered.
The peat takes place around the burned wood, the cigarette and the grilled meat.
Sherry makes a name for itself with cocoa and dried fruits and Bourbon takes over: vanilla custard and granny apple.
Youth is dominated by flour and cereals, a bitterness that I call pleasant by licorice and the sensation of chewing lavender.
The Aeration and the retro-olfaction open new doors where the barrels express themselves again: Lemon tart and strawberry fruit paste with mint.
● The final.
The finish is long, really durable.
The licorice wood and gentian are accompanied by a smoked fish type bonito dried.
The resistance maintains the vanilla paste with licorice.
● The empty glass.
Plum queen-claude, different citrus, smoked wood and pine resin.
Glengyle gives us a voluminous, bold and complex Kilkerran, a beautiful feat at the sight of this youth.
The peat is remarkably smoky and sweet, powerful and lemony, but leaves the door open to a wide world, again, I'm stuck with this success so young.
The appointment is made for next year.
If it had to be given a subjective note, it would be a 89.
