talking of 18 year old Glenfiddich reminded me that I need to get some kininvie....does anyone know where to get it first hand (so to speak) I believe its an aeroport job??

dont fancy paying the "add-on" tax from the usual suspects :P

The key question is whether this state of affairs is but a temporary one or more permanent in nature.

Kininvie was never really offered as a regular single malt though they did release 2 limited editions, Hazelwood 105 and Hazelwood Reserve found only at the World Of Whiskies at Heathrow and no longer available (there).

Hazelwood 105

Good looking whisky but far, far out of my budget.


Cheers!

Grants have probably decided that Ailsa Bay will be Kininvie's replacement. Kininvie's whisky failed to make it as a malt in it's own right, too dull.

Maybe the teaspoon gave it too much of a metallic taste.

I believe it was not well regarded, although the cask samples I tried had nothing to be ashamed of.

I tasted so far 2 casks samples from 1990 Kinninvie (1x Bourbon and 1x Sherry). They were pretty good, but not exceptionnal.

Kininvie is is one third of Monkey SHoulder these days and they have enough stocks to meet this demand for the next couple of decades. I would expect to see the odd release if a specific cask does something interesting but that is about it. Otherwise, yes mothballed but but still there and able to get going again very simply as many of the facilities (wash room etc) are on the same site as The Balvenie.

I was told a few weeks ago that it is actually 90+% of Monkey Shoulder. It was from out tour guide and he seemed to know what he was talking about. But not sure how to confirm for sure

I expect it is far more than 33% - I ismply meeant one of the 3 malts involved. At £22 ish a bottle for Monkey Shoulder you would do well have it being an even split with The Balvenie and Glenfiddich!

Hi,

Not sure if you (or anyone else) is still looking but I have a bottle of Hazelwood 105 (which is the Kininvie spirit).

Let me know if interest.
Cheers.
