  4. Calmar scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    By the totality of impressions - the barrel has nailed the foundation, too much brandy and grapes, too little is left for Glenkinchi, only at the finish the long-playing base breaks its way. I like cognac as such, I switched from it to whisky, but I do not like cognac very much in whisky.
    • Nose
      Cool, wet, grapes, wine notes, Hennessy-style cognac, wet wine barrel, raisins, malt, thinner, ether, herbaceous tones in the background.
    • Taste
        Sweet, cognac, a wave of pepper, grapes, oak, burnt sugar, fudge.
    • Finish
        Light pepper on a sweet fruit and grape background, tangerines, light oak mustard and only in the end breaks through a characteristic sourish, a little bit sharp as from ascorbic acid.

  6. spigray scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    what a fine dram, should have bought a bottle when it was launched, nowadays too expensive.
    89/100
    • Nose
      very fresh, slightly shy. rather spirity, perhaps it´s only the high ABV. so letś add some drops of water: yeah, opens up! apples, pears, oranges, hazelnuts, a bit of vanilla and hints of beeswax.
    • Taste
      much more intense, much higher complexity with the same fruitiness as on the nose but it´s much maltier with a honeyed background. also some sherry influence mostly on mild sultanas.
      really good.
    • Finish
      long, intense, rich, polished wood.

  7. RL_whisky scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    With water the nose suffers a little bit, but it enhances the taste quite a bit (finish suffers a lot though). Best: try it both ways! Well worth it.

    Best Glenkinchie i've tasted so far!
    • Nose
      Fruity (peaches, apricots, oranges, bananas, grapes), sherry, dry, spicy (pepper, cinnamon), raisins
    • Taste
      Rich, oily, creamy, buttery, grenadine, nutty, nutmeg, fruity (apples, bananas, berries)
    • Finish
      Long, fresh, fruity, oaky
