  1. Drum scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    I can drink the Glenkinchinie DE well, but unfortunately something was missing to enjoy it, it was a bit too thin in the mouth and unfortunately I missed the aroma that was special for me.
    • Nose
      Sweet and sherry with a slight sting in the nose, followed by malt, honey, grapes and grape must with herbal sweets. Over time, the stinging disappears, making way for a fresh menthol note.
    • Taste
      Honey and a pleasant sweetness with herbs and ginger, Almdudler and citrus fruits. Quite dry and on the tongue and a bit thin..
    • Finish
      Warm honey with now tart notes. Wood and tobacco also mingle with grapefruit. It remains dry and astringent.

    • Nose
      The nose feels good ripe fruit, perhaps pear, floral (rose), fresh cereal and a note of tea. Very original and pleasant.
    • Taste
      In the mouth it is light, a little spicy and sweet. The taste has something familiar that takes me back many years to the time of elementary school. I have to think about it a lot but finally I have the enlightenment: cocoina, the glue in the cylindrical jar that was used at school!
    • Finish
      The finish is delicate and creamy, with the cocoina still in the background. Very original, I really liked it!

    A rather good showing from Glenkinchie, although I could do with something a little less dry and spicy.
    • Nose
      Fairly shy. Rum raisins and peanut skins, accompanied by a sweet floral influence. There's just a slight farmy touch as well, giving it some depth. I also get subtle stone fruits.
    • Taste
      Rather malty, dry and spicy (cloves, ginger), with a touch of toasted oak. There's a whiff of tobacco too, and roasted peanuts. Slightly sour and herbacious, with just a hint of cherry syrup.
    • Finish
      Lingering spices. Medium in length.

  5. Beaty-Tang scored this whisky 82 points Member Senior

    Almost youthful fresh - the first thought was more towards fruity raw brandy. You only notice the barrel finish in taste and finish. On the nose there is a lot of crisp, fresh fruit with a slight penchant for tropical fruits (e.g. peach). In addition, sweet and floral.
    Well done overall, but an easy drinking whisky and nothing that spontaneously inspires me. Pleasant but interchangeable. However, I could imagine that beginners in the field of single malt whisky have very good access here. The price is around 50 € a little too high for my taste. There are better on cheaper / similar terms.
