Glenkinchie Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Add to Cart
After mellowing in a refill cask to develop the soft distillery character for a decade, a secondary maturation in a specifically chosen Amontillado cask wood ensures that all the good work continues.
Taste: in brief… An intriguing whisky. Fascinating and very enjoyable.
in a sentence… Balanced sweet and dry nose, enormous malt palate and long oaky, dry finish - the second maturation perfectly develops Glenkinchie’s character.
Nose: Brisk, sharp and brittle. An excellent nose; astonishing balance and complexity between sweet and dry. The slightly firmer, drier notes are provided by very soft vanillins and crisp grape; the sweeter, nuttier ones by the malted barley and possibly the Spanish oak.
Palate: Essentially dry following a very early burst of biscuity-sweetness. Enormous malt character, the more pronounced as it can be measured against the thin fruitiness of the grape.
Finish: A very long offering of oak. Remains dry with very faint peppery notes - again, oak induced - spicing things up a little. Some very late caramel softens things down, though - especially when the glass has warmed in the hand.
Age: Varies. Double matured in Amontillado cask wood
Strength: 43% ABV
