Kilkerran (formerly known as Glen Gyle) was founded in 2004 (thanks to funding from Springbank) after it had been closed since 1925. This work in progress malt was matured in a Sherry cask for 9 years
Nose: vanilla is the first prominent note, definite earthiness, yeast, tar, sea salt, some sand and sour apple. With water has that Jura note, tequila/bread dough thing, nose a Jura and you will know. Some more vanilla as well.
Pallet: it’s juicy with oranges, spices, liquorice also a mineral element with tar and earthiness continuing from the nose. With water some yoghurt and more mineral notes.
Finish: a short finish for me, with some salt, and some pepper, it is refreshing. With water yoghurt notes continues and a petrol type aftertaste
Mark neat – 7.7, with water 7.9
its a really interesting malt but it isnt quite finished yet,its still a bit too nippy and the finish doesnt have the impact of the nose or the pallet. Right idea but its still a bit early. Not bad
