    This sherry-wood-aged whisky is one of the last of Kilkerran's "Work in Progress" lineup. The WIP line was a series of annual releases from Mitchell's Glengyle distillery, before they finally had enough mature stock on hand to debut Kilkerran 12 last year. Compared to the flagship, this early sneak peek into their lineup was matured entirely in sherry wood and is a year or two younger. It's also better. Its aromas feature a noticeably more intense, earthier peat, almost mezcal-like on some passes, along with caramel. Its well-balanced palate combines heather and cherries with smoke, sherry, spice, and syrup. That smoke stars in the finish, like a bonefire of pine smoke and meaty flavors. This isn't easy to find nowadays, but it was reasonably priced when it debuted.

    The arrival of some WIP 6 samples reminded me that I never posted a review of this one when I tasted it last year. My scattershot notes reference a beautiful nose, Christmas pudding, rum and raisin, brûlée and a dry finish. That sounds like four stars in my book, though I did note that the mouthfeel was a little watery. Looking forward to going back in time to number 6.

    Glengyle rocks it, man. I thought the 12 was absolutely a must have, and this should be right along side of it. The nose is sherry forward, balanced with the wood. Cherries, fresh cut lawn, and more floral properties with a couple drops of water. The palate is great with a heavy mouth coat of oil, cinnamon, spices, caramel and dark fruit. The finish is good too! Thankfully not a dry one, and brings out a woody toffee flavor met with even more spice and sugar. 4.0. Excellent dram and the theme should be "Sherry" by the Four Seasons.
