This 12 Year Old whisky is from Campbeltown in Scotland. The Glengyle distillery was founded in 1872 by the previous owner of the Springbank distilllery, William Mitchell. Over the years distillery has changed hands, gone into liquidation, sold off equipment and ultimately stopped producing. However it was revived in 2004 by - once again co-incidentally the previous owner of Springbank. This 12 year old is the heart of the Glengyle Distillery’s range. We had the 16 year old whisky which is the oldest released from Kilkerran so far but they have big plans. We're looking forward to more releases already.
The 12 is lightly peated and non chill filtered. It has a lightness and freshness but with a gentle biscuity note, and balanced spice. Matured in bourbon and sherry cask.
Bottle Size: 70cl
