Kilkerran Work in Progress #5 Bourbon Wood
Peated Single Malt
Kilkerran // Campeltown, Scotland
Glengyle Distillery opened in 2004, over 125 years after it was initially founded by William Mitchell in 1872. Its history is colorful one, involving ownership changes, ceased whisky production, and multiple attempts by investors to re-open the distillery. This eventually became reality when it was purchased by Hedley Wright, great-great nephew of Mitchell himself. While the distillery waits 12 years for its flagship whisky to mature, it has been releasing a line of "Work in Progress" whiskies. This bourbon matured expression is the second half of their WIP #5 release; the first half being a sherry matured single malt. Only 9000 bottles were released in 2013.
