Glenkinchie 12yr Scotch



Region - The undisputed champion of the light Lowland style.

Appearance - Bright gold.

Body - Light, smooth.

Palate - Crisp mid-palate then butter icing, lemon cheesecake and freesias.

Finish - Herbal and drying, a little like potpourri.

"Very pretty on the nose. Violets, sweet grain and orange. Lovely and sweet, slightly syrupy." - Ed Bates 2014, Whisky Magazine, Issue 118, p.106

"Like Dalwhinnie, Glenkinchie starts life as a (deliberately) sulfury new make, but this character falls away in time to reveal delicacy. As a 10 year old, that sulfur could still be hanging around ƒ?? one reason for the switch to a 12 year age statement. The improvement is noticeable. Here are gently lifted floral notes, hints of dry grass, and crisp pear. The feel is gentle and slow in the center, while vanilla creeps into the finish. Not complex, but very pleasant." - Dave Broom, The Whisky Advocate Summer 2012
