    The 1996 edition of Distiller`s Edition from Glenkinchie, this is made with a secondary maturation in Amontillado sherry casks, which add loads of fascinating flavour.

    • Nose
      Initially close but after a while opens into a wonderful rich herbal bouquet laced with fruit soda bread.
    • Taste
      A little herbal note comes through but I found it a let down after the vibrancy of the nose.
    • Finish
      Malty,short almost not there.
