[August, 2015] I bought bottle no. 02572 for 60 Euro in April, 2015. These carefully selected casks for the first ever release of the Kininvie sngle malt are indeed very delicate and I can understand why the blenders claimed all the stocks so far... This is certainly NOT a whisky for Islay style lovers or "oompf" fans - but if you like balance and the complexity of virtually hundreds of different flavours in a flowery/fruity/nutty profile, this is a must try.
The Kininvie distillery itself is a rather unspectacular ribbed roof building that hides in the huge Glenfiddich/Balvenie complex (just pass Balvenie distillery to the left and after two warehouses you see a garage style building to your left that can be easily overlooked). Nevertheless, this malt should be bottled more often as I am curious if future releases can keep up with the excellent profile of this 17 year old.
PS: This dram takes some time to open up to its full potential - and always remember to warm the glass to body temperature before nosing/tasting it!
