The second release in the Kilkerran Work in Progress series. Bottles were released at regular intervals until the whisky finally reaches full maturity. A 12yo will be the first official release in 2016. It's a great way of watching the whisky develop. This June 2010 edition is part of a release of 18000 bottles.
Glengyle distillery is a distillery, founded in 1872 by William Mitchell and completed in 1873. Mitchell had previously been involved with Springbank Distillery but following a quarrel with his brother John, with whom he owned Springbank, he first joined his other brothers at Reichlachan distillery before venturing out on his own. In late 2000 the company of Mitchell's Glengyle Ltd. was formed with the express purpose of renovating and rebuilding the Glengyle distillery. Mitchell's Glengyle is associated with the Springbank Distillery, and both operations come under the guidance of Mr. Hedley Wright, a descendant of the Mitchell Family, the original owners of both businesses.

Nose: Light and fragrant leading you into the dram gently.
Palate: Refreshing lemon citrus, hints of pear and just a dash of sherbet. Masses of sweet vanilla immediately take over the taste-buds before the classic Campbeltown salt hits the tongue. Creamy toffee and butterscotch become apparent as the natural oils coat the mouth.
