Representing Scotland’s Lowland whisky region in Diageo’s Classic Malts of Scotland range, Glenkinchie's standard bottling used to be as a ten year old but it was found that the two extra years in oak imparted generous vanilla to the whisky.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 20/06/2015

Appearance

Clear, pale golden amber with polished golden highlights.

Aroma

Barley, freshly cut grass and cream-of-soda vanilla with cooked apple juice, blackened fruit cake, herbal teak wood, walnut shells, toasted coconut and very faint wisps of smoke.

Taste

Light and malty. Spicy crème anglaise, honey and cooked apple with underlying chewy dry smoky salty oak, clove and black pepper spice.

Aftertaste

Smoked barley water with lingering salty spice.

Overall

Malty and honeyed yet light with spicy crème anglaise and chewy dry smoky salty oak.
