The whisky starts off a little flat on the nose, which certainly also explains the weak 40% vol. is owed. But over time it develops a bit. There are fruit notes that are not only on the light fruity side, but also cherry, a little in the direction of artificial cherry aromas. For 10 years the aroma is quite ok.
The taste is then also cherry, reminiscent of cough drops with cherry flavor. None of this lasts very long and is a bit weak, a little mustiness, funk or maritime aromas flashes behind the fruit, but remains more of an appeal and does not assert itself. The light cherry remains in the foreground, the whisky is sweet overall. There was a cherry sunkist in childhood long ago...
The finish cannot build up, some cherry menthol remains. And a little bitterness from the undefined casks.
Quite nice with the cherries - but then overall too meaningless, flat and much too sweet and perfumed. The typical Campbeltown notes are missing, the funk is hinted at and then quickly disappears. Somehow the reason why you should buy this whisky is missing. It's a bit like a wine that's too sweet, flavored with cherry lollipops. Sorry, but this isn't a Campbeltown whisky...
