TASTING NOTES – GLENKINCHIE 12 yo

Nose

The olfactory approach is persuasive and enveloping, creamy, malty, and vanilla, with a slightly sour yellow fruit (medlar). The sweetness also takes on a floral nuance, like that of orange blossom.

Palate

On the palate, it shows aromas of baked apples with vanilla, walnut, and hazelnut. Just slightly spicy. The sour side stimulates salivation. Honey at times. In some moments, it recalls Sauternes or Calvados.

Finish

It has a long finish for it, having only a 43% ABV, with sweetness and mild dried fruit.

Overall, the Glenkinchie 12 yo is a whisky of enviable creaminess, which well represents the fresh and delicate character of the Lowlands, adding a complex sweetness of sweet wines, honey, and a mellow floral nuance. The Balance and the level of the product make it a simple and enjoyable drink.
