Glenkinchie 12 Years

This is the lightest and softest bottling within the Classic Malts of Scotland. Originally the Glenkinchie was bottled as a 10-year-old. The two extra years have given him much more information.

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!
