Day 22 - Kilkerran 12 Year Old

Weekend wishes!

We're continuing our 12 year old whisky trend with this highly-esteemed dram from Kilkerran, made at Glengyle distillery in Campbeltown.

(not up to speed on 25 Days of Drams? Catch up with our introduction and all the days so far here)

Here's Chris talking about what makes today's dram special:

Recap: For each day of the 25 (we're Christmas day drammers here at the Dram Team), I'm going to give a few brief reasons I think each dram is worth your time and attention - which are the same reasons I picked each one to be in our boxes in the first place. And, we're giving away the full set of drams:

Reasons why Chris recommends this whisky:

Reason 1 - It is the distillery equivalent of a raised middle finger to the Scotch whisky authorities, who wanted to demote Campbeltown from its status as an officially recognised Scotch whisky region: This distillery was reopened with the sole aim of preventing this demotion by increasing the number of distilleries in Campbeltown to 3 (the same as the Lowlands region).

Reason 2This is the only expression of Kilkerran available year-round from Glengyle distillery, with the only other releases being intermittent annual specials (like the 8 year old cask strength).
