Whisky Reviews for Glenkinchie 2008

  1. Koning scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    This is the 12 finished in amontillado sherry casks for 3 to 6 months. I am surprised by the impact of it. It's richer, but the typical flowery notes of the 12 are gone.

      Quite rich with puff pastry and apple pie with pears and caramel. Shares the sour lemon and yogurt notes of the 12, but lacks the flowery scents.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Tarte tatin (apple,caramel), grapefruit and roasted peanut. A bit musty too, mushroom alike.
    • Finish
      80 80
      Juicy fruits give away to a spicy dryness.
