Was not too impressed. Has a grainy, creamyness to it which is decent. Kinda reminded me of an Irish blend in some respects. Overall was not happy with the price spending over 50.00 USD on it. Many other malts I would rather spend my cash on.

Very pleasant to drink a lighter taste whisky. This is a Lowland malt that should be tried, It would be hard not to like it.

Extremely smooth and light. A delight to drink

A sipping whisky better after the second tasting, with flavours of marzipan and subtle floral notes. Rewards a little patience as it opens out slowly in the glass developing strongly with a little warmth from your hand. One to be savoured - a little time and effort brings sweet grassy and floral dividends.

This is a typical Lowland malt which isn't peaty, but has a strong floral aroma, hints of pear and is quite sweet. A dash of water or ice opens it up. If your after peat, go for an Islay malt.

It took almost the whole bottle until I found these deep layers flavor. I am a Islay man, but this is very good stuff. Much more patient is needed with these Lowland malts, but in Glenkinchie there are rewarding floral and fruity tones.

Incredible stuff, rich and floral with layers of unfolding flavour, and a wonderful aroma. The finish leaves you with the surprising taste of peat (not wasabi and bare alcohol, as a previous review stated).

Starts out fine with honey, whisps of smoke, virtually no peat, but then on the finish takes a turn for the worse, with wasabi and bare alcohol. Unpleasant finish. This is too expensive for what you get.

A very nice single malt, as a fan of Irish Whiskey this proves to be a very smooth drink with a hint of pear you cant go wrong.

Lovely drink, light and floral, a real girls drink and I want some more ASAP!

A lovely malt. Give it some time to open up and it rewards with a delicious aroma and exquisite bittersweet flavours.
- anonymous, 3rd Jan '10
depends on your taste.. if you're after rich and peaty then forget it, go for something like Lagavulin instead. If you like something light smooth and easy-going then you'll be very happy with this.

Just toned down, if you ask me. I quite liked it when I had tooth ache but the second tasting was a disappointment. Not bad by any means, but not terribly exciting, either.

A very "well rounded" whiskey with a smooth flavour and just a touch of smokiness. Sort of like a toned down Talisker IMHO.

A very smooth very easy to drink whiskey. The best I have tried yet, and the only one I truly enjoy. Highly recomended to try. Recomended to me in Melrose
