Lowland whiskies tend to be overlooked by many whisky drinkers. That's unjustified! Being a rather light, soft and floral Single Malt, Glenkinchie 12 has a surprising complexity. The nose is mildly grainy and fruity with honey, nuts and caramel. It's a busy nose that needs a bit of time to open up. The taste is full-bodied with ripe fruits, honey, pepper and a malty spiciness. It turns slightly dry, and there is an occasional spiritiness coming through. The finish is fresh and spicy - but rather short. An easy-access Single Malt with some remarkable character to it!

Pale gold
Nose

Etwas flache Nase, Honig, floral mit ein paar Blümchen, süße Kräuter, Toffee, etwas Gras und Heide im Hintergrund, Aprikose, Hauch Orangenschale (aber wie gesagt alles nur entfernte Andeutungen), Vanille, insgesamt schon typisch Lowlandstyle angelegt

Taste

Süßer Barley, Blumenwiese im Mund mit leicht pikanter Eiche, Thymian, weißer Pfeffer dazwischen, Aprikose, aber großteils die Floralität mit etwas trocken-malziger (nicht so leckerer) Eiche

Finish

Joa, sehr schnell verwässter schon nach bisschen Speichel, ist dadurch recht unspannend und kurz, ein, zwei Blümchen bleiben, sonst süßes, etwas kratziges Malz für mich

Comments

Hmm, also die Nase war trotz der wenig Power noch das schönste und der allererste Geschmack vllt., mir gefällt diese billig-wirkende Eiche und der weiße Pfeffer da garnicht. Besonders ab dem 3. Schluck hat es was von einem billigen Blend mit leichte Floralität.

Nose

Schöner vielgestaltiger Duft mit "süßlichen Kräutern".

Taste

Sehr weich im Mund, leichte Fruchtgummi-Note, auch mit "Fruchtgummi-Malz" und reife Birne ist auch dabei.

Finish

Fruchtiger, mittellanger Abgang.

Comments

Sehr schönes Design: Edel und ganz "CK", aber das sollte bei einem Single Malt ja nicht die Hauptrolle spielen.
