Kilkerran "Work In Progress #7" Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1218640

The spectacular Glengyle Distillery is truly a gem. This may be the best they've release so far. Serge from Whiskyfun seemed to agree, "Oh, they’re trying to play tricks on us, this is cask strength! Colour: pale gold. Nose: mineral, he said. This is totally and plainly mineral, I cannot detect anything else than limestone, sand, and all that. Perhaps lime? Maybe eucalyptus? Possibly a little muesli and porridge? Other than that, it’s rather closed, but the profile’s pretty perfect. With water: putty, wet paint, rust-inhibiter, damp clay, rainwater, beach sand, chalk. Mouth (neat): a totally impressive, whistle-clean, ultra-lemony arrival, a style that only a few old Bladnochs could have, a long time ago (if my memory doesn’t fail me). I find this totally perfect, and even refreshing despite the higher strength. Watch maltoporn. With water: perfect lime-y and mineral profile, with a tiny sour touch that adds dimension and complexity. Cottage cheese? Finish: long and zesty, always very mineral, with a woolly side. Coal smoke or something in the aftertaste. Comments: love this style, but that’s hardly news." -91 points

Really special nose of roasted grains, subtle smoke and a panoply of spices. Really persistent on the palate with a sweetness that balances the smokiness or maybe the smoke balances the sweetness. Either way, really integrated flavors that leap from glass to nose to mouth. Rich texture with a long finish. Loved every bit of it.
