Whisky Reviews for Glenkinchie Available only at the Distillery

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.43 points

  1. fritzbrause scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Quite surprising sugary and grassy notes in the nose. Quite more complex than the standard and even most of the "special releases". Grassy, sweet and clear hints of green apples on the well balanced palate. 

    The distillery people explained that this is a triples matured expression. Whilst matured for 12 years in the (for Glenkinchie) standard second and first fill Bourbon casks, they transferred the Whisky into freshly heavy  charred casks and then into sherry casks for rest of the maturation. 

    There is no age statement on the bottles. 

    For me that one beated the 12year old, the distillers edition and even the 24 year old while in the VIP tasting at the distillery. Only the direct cask sample of an 1988 sherry cask Glenkinchie in cask strength was better (by far :-).

    This is just a tiny sample from the distillery but it hits the spot straight away. Lovely texture and some succulent fruit and honey notes with tangy citrus
