Whisky Reviews for Glenkinchie 1986
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.89 points
- The nose is overwhelmingly orange & toffee/caramel, this smells really rich.
The palate is spicy and very rich but it is too thick & syrupy for me.
There is some nice flavours in there for sure but this is not for me
- A rounded body.
Lightly floral aroma of polished oak. Sweet lemon. Spices.
The amontillado seems to heighten the interplay between sweetness and dryness. Brown sugar and butter, dry nuttiness, hint of saltiness.
Sweet, astonishingly long and soothing.
- Nose is too Sharp for me. Oranges and Vanilla and fruity.
Taste is sweet and oily with loads of fruit.
Finish is rather short with ripe Oranges and oak.
- The finishing does help the Glenkinchie. Still not great though
Rich fruity malt, musty wood shavings, gravel dust and grist.
Very rich. but typically harsh. Lots of spiky sweet fruit notes.
Turns harsh quickly and holds on to it.
- Tasted this one during an N&T at a whiskyshop in the middle of Holland back in 1999 (found a wee record of it). I remembered that this one had a lovely combination between the American oak first and refills for the usual Glenkinchie and the lovely finish from the European oak. You can`t call it a finish anymore at that stage. The nose was Lowland style at first (citrus, grassy, vanillins) with a nice layer of dried fruit from the sherry. The taste was like a mellow, citrus sorbet like flavor with some of the sherry sweetness as a topping. The finish was long, slightly dark and sweet spicy wich lingers on.
