Glenkinchie from Cadenhead

1. Glenkinchie 21yo 51.6%
20cl bottling, no further data

Nose : a nice clean spirited nose with a big dash of vanilla, and a hint of nuts

Palate : more vanilla, wood spices. This is a simple, fragile and delicious dram. 

Finish : Short but with presence, the wood part of the palate hits deliciously

5-6 years ago Cadenhead bottled a range of Glenkinchies distilled around 1987 as approx 17-19 years old. These were faboulous. This might be a left over, not so active cask, as this is more thin on the spirit compared to the others (If you find any of them, it's a MUST buy)

This one, being more delicate and fragile in it's expression is also a delicious dram. Calssical well balanced whisky, that's not been messed with, that is no peat, sherry or any other wine influence. No sweetness at all and a little bitterness

Rating 84
