Glenkinchie Distillers Edition 2017 Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 70cl
Glenkinchie - The Distillers Edition is double-matured in Amontillado cask wood, the nutty character of which was elegantly chosen to round out and deepen the sweet and dry character of Glenkinchie; it has a firm, dry and really malty palate, and a spicy oak-driven finish.
Firm, light to medium.
Brisk, sharp, and brittle. Complex and excellent; the astonishing balance between sweet and dry. Firmer, drier notes from soft vanillins and crisp grape; sweeter, nuttier ones from malted barley, and cask wood.
Dry, after early biscuity-sweetness. The enormous malt character contrasts with the thin fruitiness of the grape.
Very long, dry, oaky. Very faint peppery notes add spice.
