Barrels used in the Aging: Amontillado Cask Finish.
Bottle Size: 700ml
A special bottle for special occasions, this 2016 Distillers Edition is one of the finest bottles to come from the Glenkinchie Distillery. Finished in Amontillado sherry casks before being bottled after a 12-year process, it’s one of those that bring both joy and blurred vision to your senses. It has a floral malt nose with a touch of marmalade, a soft, spicy palate, with notes of sherry really pushing through on the finish.
Flavour Profile: Nose
Florals & malt eagerly meet the nose, ahead of a gentle wave of sweet Sherry, nutmeg & marmalade.
Flavour Profile: Palate
There's a reflection of fruit cocktail at first, winding into soft oak, marzipan & brown sugar. Dry spices then develop with a curious hint of cheese and pepper.
Flavour Profile: Finish
Soft, dried apricot & chewy barley bring forward a long, warming, fruity finish.
