Glenkinchie 2021 Distillers Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 70cl
2009 Glenkinchie double-matured in ex-bodega Amontillado cask wood for a nuttiness that rounds and deepens the sweet, grassy and dry aromas and tastes of the regular release. Part of our 2021 Distillers Edition range. Limited quantities worldwide.
Glenkinchie Distillers Edition won Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2008. It also won International Wine and Spirit Competition Gold in 2002, 2006 (Trophy & Best in Class), 2008 (Trophy & Best in Class) and 2011. It took Gold at Scotch Whisky Masters in 2008 and 2011. And last but not least, it was judged World’s Best Lowland Single Malt Whisky at the World Whiskies Awards in 2009.
Brisk and brittle. Complex and excellent; astonishing balance between sweet and dry. Firmer, drier notes from soft and crisp grape; sweeter, nuttier ones from malted barley and cask wood."
Dry, after early biscuit sweetness. Enormous malt character contrasts with thin fruitiness of the grape.
Very long, dry, oaky. Very faint peppery notes add spice.
