- Distilled in 1999, this is a delicious whisky from Glenkinchie, bottled for Diageo's Distillers Edition range. It was finished in tasty Amontillado sherry casks, and the result is an added fruity depth...
- Had this dram first during a blind taste event (Proef Olympics Ledendag 2) as the 3rd dram (after the welcome dram), and later on re-evaluated a bit i had left in the sample bottle.
the white threads of an orange peel (just learned that this is called pith) with quite some oak notes. Also some spicy and some more unpleasant acetone notes.
quite astringent with old dry tangerines. More spices than in the nose,
The finish is short to medium, and relatively sweet compared to the body.
As a guess i went for a deanston in an overactive sherry cask.
Nail polish remover, cereal biscuit, honey, cinnamon, cherry, orange and a touch of chocolate
Cereal biscuit, honey, orange peel, cherries, coffee and bitter chocolate
Short, orange peel, cereal biscuit and a little pepper.
- It's a fine whisky, a prototypical 80 point dram for me. Very middle of the pack.
A light spiciness (cinnamon) with cookie dough. Cherries and oranges supply a bit of sweetness. Very uncomplicated and straight forward.
Much more spices now with cloves, nutmeg and pepper. A woody bitterness also, followed by a hint of sweet cherry syrup, but there's also a sourness here.
Oaky and bitter. Fairly short.
- A fruity and slightly spicy single malt. Nevertheless, individual fruit components are rather difficult to find out. Creamy in the mouth, with a fast fading finish.
Peppery, spicy aromas. Orange peel, boiled sweets and a touch of oak.
Warm, rich palate entry with soft sherry, hints of molasses and walnut. Marzipan develops. Oaky spices.
Malt and fruit. Very nutty.
