This 2000 vintage Distillers Edition from the Lowlands distillery of Glenkinchie is a wonderful single malt that was bottled in 2013. The whisky has been finished in Amontillado sherry casks from Jerez in the South of Spain that provides wonderfully fruity, yet spicy notes. It’s a great price for a vintage, which should please the taste buds of those who like a lighter, more delicate Scotch - perfect for the summer months.
Flavour Profile: Nose
Raisins & citrus bring forward a dry, but not crisp nose. Heather & vanilla play a role without overpowering the performance.
Flavour Profile: Palate
Soft malt keys open up into honeyed cereal. Quickly replaced by a drier, nuttier note, the sweetness fades & a sherry style complexity takes hold.
Flavour Profile: Finish
A superbly short & delicate finish. Hints of citrus re-emerge leading to fresh green leaves & an aftertaste of a sunny day on the farm.
