Customer Rating
A rare, refill-European-oak-matured release from Glenkinchie, part of the Diageo Special Releases 2016. This is weightier than the most releases from the distillery, with well-balanced fresh and dried fruit, and a background of spice.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy Abbott (TWE)

    Nose: 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.

    Palate: 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.

    Finish: More sugared almonds, a touch of aniseed-ball heat and juicy orange rolling down the sides of the tongue.

    Comment: 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.
