Glengyle

Posted 19 July 2018

It’s almost a year since we last took a look at Glengyle and its Kilkerran single malt – there’s a simple reason for this – there has not been any new official bottlings (outside of festival editions) since the release of the 8 year old Cask Strength edition in 2017. Following on from yesterday’s Kilchoman Sanaig review, we thought we’d stick to the theme of mineralistic whiskies and dig into our liquid archive for a look at an older (relatively) Kilkerran bottling. What we found in the Work in Progress 7 Bourbon Wood is a whisky so crystalline that it almost feels like it was excavated from a mine.

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.
