Glengyle Distillery opened in 2004, over 125 years after it was initially founded by William Mitchell in 1872. Its history is colorful one, involving ownership changes, ceased whisky production, and multiple attempts by investors to re-open the distillery. That eventually became reality when it was purchased by Hedley Wright, great-great nephew of Mitchell himself. While this Campbeltown distillery waits 12 years for its flagship whisky to mature, it has been releasing a line of “Work in Progress” whiskies. Only 9,000 bottles of Kilkerran Single Malt Work in Progress #5 Sherry Matured were released in 2013.
Introduced in 2014, this expression was released under Kilkerran’s Work in Progress series. This single malt whisky has aged 10 years in ex-bourbon barrels before being bottled at 46% ABV.
Dark chocolate, marzipan, honey covered dates and strawberries build up to a very rich and sweet ginger preserve.
The honey covered dates return on the palate mixed with sultanas and black treacle fudge. This dram is as wholesome and tasty as a warm, toasted cinnamon and raisin bagel with real butter melting on top.
Medium, well balanced and round finish, presence of dark chocolate but surprisingly no evidence of peat.
