Tasting notes by Billy Abbott (TWE)
Sweet citrus, sugar flowers and royal icing, with a touch of Eccles-cake fruit – a slice of wedding cake and a slice of lemon drizzle on the same plate. Stewed apples and underripe mandarins add a sweet-and-sour note, with sweet and pleasantly dusty sugared almonds alongside. Water mulches down the fruit, with squidgy apple skins and warm oranges emerging.
Darker than expected, with spiced sponge and sultanas on top of a wave of spice and concentrated fruitiness – apple squash and tropical fruit juice. Water wipes out the heat from the spice, revealing toffee apples and sugar-dusted Nice biscuits.
More sugared almonds, a touch of aniseed-ball heat and juicy orange rolling down the sides of the tongue.
Controlled European oak notes add a dark depth to Glenkinchie’s traditionally lighter style, with lots of fruit and a touch of spice.

This is not a cheap whisky as you can see from the price if you buy this you will need to drink it slowly or buy 2. It is a extremly limited edition. This is a very good whisky but probaly not as good as it should be for a 24 year old limited edtion whiskey. Never the less it has a nice color. is plesant and gives a very warm feeling to drink. But you can imagine as it is 24 years old it is quite strong on the finish and can leave you with quite a burning feeling in the throat for a couple of minutes after you finish it.
