  1. Boletus did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Extremely mild and quite drinkable, the 12er ''Glenkinchie'' really doesn't tear out any trees, but as a light malt for carefree enjoyment on the side it is quite useful. If you are looking for an aroma bomb, you can confidently make a detour here. However, if you want a cheap drinking whisky without rough edges, you can definitely try this standard.
    • Nose
      Very gentle and floral-flowery scent, lots of honey and a little vanilla stand out, ripe "Golden Delicious" apples and pears also play a major role, slightly grassy, something lemony is also present, but more of a fresh herbal note such as lemon balm than one Juicy citrus fruit, maybe a hint of dried orange peel, a delicate malt component is also present, but the oak is quite reserved
    • Taste
      Very light and with a rather thin mouthfeel, honey and grassy malt dominate, toffee, plus a few delicious classic fruits such as apples and pears, but also ripe gooseberries, apricots and yellow mirabelle plums are mixed in, the oak, which seems quite used, produces almost none Impression, over time a very light milk chocolate note builds up
    • Finish
      Short, very smooth and mild, a ripe gooseberry note pops up and then gives way to apricots and mirabelle plums, a small pinch of degassed white pepper creates a first hint of spice, a little vanilla, with a residue of grassy malt and light honey and a floral one The memory of jasmine blossoms fades away
