Review and Tasting

Clear, golden amber.
Barley water, toffee apple, celery, walnuts and burnt currants and cigarette ash. With water, apple and roasted pineapple and biscuity vanilla.
Spicy apple and cedar with burnt currants and sultanas. This is a powerful dry malt that needs water, even then it’s still spicy but with a barley sweetness.
Peppery spice and barley water with ash and toasted cedar.
A light whisky weighed down with heavy burnt raisiny European oak and enlivening peppery spice. This is far from being a crowd pleaser but is a very interesting Glenkinchie bottling.
