Glengyle, Kilkerran WIP 1 (bottled 2009), 46%

Review #547
The first in the Kilkerran Work in Progress series from Glengyle Distillery. It is a mix of Bourbon and Sherry casks and 9000 bottles were made. Light white fruits and a bit of citrus in the smell. Light peat comes forward with some vanilla as well.

The peat is fresh and more noticeable in the taste. The citrus is very dominant and lingers off in the finish. Some vanilla sweetness and a touch of oak appears. A nice dram, but not much happens to be honest.

A great start for Glengyle and Kilkerran. The balance is great, but it is not very complex and I would have loved some more flavours to back up the great balance. I will give this 82/100 (20/20/21/21).
