Kilkerran is the rising star of Campbeltown and the Work In Progress series is a testament to that. This installment is matured in Bourbon Wood and is roughly 8 or so years old.

Nose: Fresh. Very fresh. Hay bales sit atop a grassy knoll of warm lemon apple stew and crumbling ginger biscuits fresh out of the oven. Like a picnic basket open in the wind.

Palate: Honey smooth with lemon chocolate sprinkled with the mildest of white peppers.

TFinish: Long and coats your mouth with a lemony limestone consistency interlaced with hints of spice.

A very tasty dram to say the least.
