Glenkinchie 1991 24 Year Old Special Releases 2016 Scotch Whisky

A lively Glenkinchie, with more body than younger expressions and considerably more spice. After a cautious start the nose opens to reveal clearly defined floral, fruit and cereal aromas that with water become more indulgent, while on the palate there’s complexity and a wonderfully drying, aromatic and bittersweet finish.

Tasting Notes

Appearance: Rich gold, clear amber. Good legs.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. 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.
