The second 20yo Glenkinchie bottled for Diageo's Special Releases is, like the first, a small batch from refill American oak casks. This is an equally enjoyable dram, in our opinion a bit better, although it definitely needs a drop of water to get going.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Sumptuous honeyed fruit – peaches and melons – plus floral and grassy-meadow touches, then a big hit of cloves and black pepper, with a touch of vanilla.

    Palate: So spicy! Szechuan pepper and clove, along with rich dried fruit, plus refreshing melon and fig notes. Too much water ruins this dram; a couple of drops is ideal.

    Finish: Warming, with the spicy fruit lingering.

    Comment: If you think Lowland whiskies are all gentle, grassy drams, think again. This is an intense single malt, with bags of fruit and spice with concentrated flavours.

    A wonderful dram, subtle yet complex! At 55%, it does need a drop of water to get started, but not more than a drop.
