This historic bottling of Kininvie was distilled and filled into cask 21 on the first day of the distillery's operation: 5 July 1990. Aged in an ex-bourbon hoggie, this cask-strength release is a delightful mix of fruit and spice.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Stuart P

    Nose: Rather perky and spicy initially, with cinnamon and nutmeg combining with toasty oak, then clean fruity aromas arrive in the form of lemon, red berries, mango and green apple, with heady rose petal and honeysuckle.

    Palate: Spicy, with freshly ground black pepper and stem ginger leading the way. Adding water – which is essential, by the way – brings out softer, fruitier notes of apple and mango, along with floral notes and a touch of vanilla.

    Finish: Well balanced, with the spice and fruit intermingling and slowly fading.

    Comment: An intriguing whisky that hits you with rich spiciness at first, then softens and shows its fruitier side.
