First Impression: Glenkinchie 24 Years Old

[57.2%・Distilled in 1991・24 Years Old・Bottled in 2016・Official Bottling・Limited Edition]

Nose:

A shy nose that embarks with notes of pine wood, wild flowers and honeyed granola. Buttery waffles to follow with a spray of lime vapours and rounded off with grilled pineapple slices once it has been given ample time to open up.

Palate & Finish:

Lemony and lively, the citrus note jumps out and it brings out this clean maltiness that has been accentuated by the white oak note. A subtle honey sweetness inserts itself and this leads to a crisp but steady finish decorated with tannins.

Thoughts:

I am not usually a Glenkinchie fan; but this is certainly a fine offering, a dram I wouldn’t mind having more of. If Lowland malt is your thing, your prayers have been answered.
