Information:

Make: Glenkinchie

Age: 24 Years Old distilled 1991

Strength: 57.2% ABV

Place of Origin: Pencaitland

Region: Lowland

Nose:

Mature and considered. Gentle at first, then soon rich and generous, with tangy top notes of lime and toffee apple then a suggestion of walnuts on a soft, sweet, biscuit layer. A mossy base too, with traces of pine resin. Becoming more juicy in time, when pineapple, orange and raisin notes appear as the base note becomes more ashy, with caramel leading to burnt butter. Water dries the aroma more, making it appetisingly tart with stewed fruit and vanilla custard, and increasing the toffee note as it introduces a trace of warm sanded wood.

Palate:

Smooth textured and warming, with a bittersweet start. Soon becoming spicy and woody, with cedar, banana toffee and vanilla cream. Quite drying, and growing warmer with deep, gingery notes in sweet, crunchy cereals. With water, the taste is still sweet, if less so, and smooth; delicate now, with a subtle, spicy pungency.

Finish:

Long and warm, with a trace of Szechuan pepper (spicy and mouth-cooling). Gingery with cinnamon and cedar; more toffee and chocolate-smooth tannins; then cleansing. Longer, drier and still warming with water, sweet and ashy; charred treacle toffee, again bitter-sweet.
