Slàinte_Mhath Note

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!
RATING: 3.5/5.0 85 pts

Nose: Sweet and malty. Fruit- Apple, creamy apple pie, fresh pear, malt, creamy cereal, chocolate raisins, raspberry tea. Some Sherry influence, nut, polished wood, fruitcake, rum and raisin, banana and cherry.

Lovely nose, bit too soft on the taste.

Andytka3 Review note

Andytka3 gave this whisky 73 points

Nose:- Amble of malt and nutty. Ashy presents in the middle and lightly balsamic.

Palate:- Crisp and fresh. Soothing warm sweet cereals with honey, zesty. Rooty peat lingers, gentle and pleasing, but thin and superficial, can be better.

Finish:- Short, warm honey water with a touch of charred wood.
