5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 82.37 points
- Colour: E150a
Nose: A sweeter one. Artificial sherried sweetness- Raisin, cocktail cherry, some menthol and green apple, some very sweet oak, creamy vanilla.
Taste: Nuts, wood polish, creamy oak, mellow and creamy, fruity- Cherry, raisin and dates.
Finish: Medium length. Creamy toasted oak with some bitter tannins, coffee.
Distilled 1996, bottled 2011. Light, fruity and smooth. Very quaffable whisky.
- 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.
Initially close but after a while opens into a wonderful rich herbal bouquet laced with fruit soda bread.
A little herbal note comes through but I found it a let down after the vibrancy of the nose.
Malty,short almost not there.
