Glenkinchie

Glenkinchie 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 I always enjoy this whisky, even though it is not the most typical of Lowlanders.

Glenkinchie 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Very much in its regional style, but lacks finesse or genuine interest.

Glenkinchie 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 A huge leap in quality from the old 10 Years Old.

Glenkinchie 12 Years old
- Scotland - 43.00%
6 The sulphur knocks it back in aroma erms, but the palate is good. A simple aperitif.

Glenkinchie 12 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
Attractive and with more substance than the old 10yo.

Glenkinchie 1986 Amontillado cask finish
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 As a relatively restrained whisky, Glenkinchie stands up well to the amontillado finish.

Glenkinchie 1988 Distiller's Edition
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Glenkinchie was always robust for a lowlander, and this expression is more so. Again, it works: the typical grassy sweetness brought out by a touch of sherry.

Glenkinchie 1990 20 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 55.10%
8 Impressive..

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Glenkinchie 20 Years Old
- Scotland - 58.40%
8 Balanced,mature and elegant. More robust than you expect from Lowlands. Recommended.

Glenkinchie Distillers Edition
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 Just lacks brio.

Glenkinchie Distillers Edition 1992 Amontillado
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
More interesting. Here the finish has added a new element while not killing the distillery character.

Glenkinchie Limited Edition
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.30%
7 Unbalanced.

Classic Malts Glenkinchie Special Edition, Friends of the Classic Malts
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.70%
7 Only two Years Older than the regular Glenkinchie, but much richer. A very good cask.
