Glenkinchie 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml

On the nose, this whiskey shows aromatic and floral notes. On the palate it is sweet with a slight liquorice aftertaste and a nice dry finish.  Glenkinchie 12 Year Old makes a delightful aperitif. Serve it in a martini glass with a few drops of water for a little flare. 

Bright gold. Aromatic, vanilla, cut flowers and beneath, a clean, toasty note. Increasingly sweet and creamy, with fresh citrus, lemon cheesecake. The body is light and smooth. Crisp mid-palate then butter icing, lemon cheesecake and freesias. The finish is herbal and drying, a little like potpourri.

Glenkinchie is just fifteen miles from the capital, earning it the title “The Edinburgh Malt”. But it’s strange to think of that dark and distinguished city when you see fields of barley or the green Lammermuir Hills rolling north towards the Firth of Forth. Stranger still when you taste the subtle, floral flavour of this rare Lowland survivor.
