Kilkerran 8 year old Cask Strength

Posted 04 August 2017

You'll still struggle to find a bottle of Kilkerran 12 year old at its recommended retail price, such has been its success. As a first official bottling from a new distillery I can think of few better - though many of you will have been following the Work In Progress (WIP) from Glengyle in the years before. Hot on the tails of the much lauded 12 year old comes the 8 year old Cask Strength - trading a few years of maturity for a bump in ABV up to 56.2%.

Glengyle distillery has had a potted history and, was closed for 75 years until 2000. During the closure, the site had been used as the Campbeltown Miniature Rifle Club and as a sales depot for an agricultural company. Following purchase by J&A Mitchell (owners of Springbank) distilliation is once again back on the menu, and spirits have been flowing through the Glengyle stills since 2004.
