Geruch: erst Klebstoff, dann Erdbeere, ganz aussergewöhnliche Süße.

Geschmack: sehr intensiver Antritt, untypisch für einen Lowland. Schmeckt feurig, intensiv, nach Kräutern, Gras und Heu. Langer wärmender Abgang mit Citrusfüchten

Urteil: zum ersten mal habe ich verstanden, warum Diageo Rosebank zugunsten von Glenkinchie geschlossen hat, dieser Stoff ist das beste was die Lowlands bieten!

Punkte: 94

Mr.Sandwich Note

Mr.Sandwich gave this whisky 92 points

 

Nase: sehr weich, fruchtig und komplex. Keine Spur von dem hohen Alkoholgehalt.


Mund: Kräftig und heiß, ölig, schwer, sueß nach tropischen   Fruechten mit schöner Waage der Wuerze und Spuren von Leder. Sehr angenehmes prickeln bei 60,7%. Klebt richtig auf der Zunge.

Abgang: Trocken und mittellang bis lang, leicht salzig. Nase und Mund spiegeln sich darin.

Hätte bei einer Blindverkostung nicht erraten, dass es sich um einen Lowländer handelt.

Ganz großes Kino.

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

Elegant and fresh with citrus, vanilla, vague sulphur, fermented tobacco (Davidoff blue mixture) and a little oak

Taste

Enters the mouth a bit swwwt and pale, then an explosion of fruits and spices.

Finish

Long finish slowly going from spices to orange peels to a bitter ending

Comments

An extraordinary Glenkinchie that can be recommended also to a real connoseur.
