Glenkinchie 12 Years Old 70cl 43°

Distillery : Glenkinchie / Country : Scotland / Reference: : 20363

Glenkinchie 12 years old was awarded a silver medal as the Best Single Malt Scotch among whiskies until 12 years old at the World Whiskies Awards 2019.

With a 12 years maturation in American oak barrels, this expression of Glenkinchie develops floral notes and a flavoursome and fresh creaminess. It replaces the 10 years old version and shows great maturity.

Soft and smooth, fresh and light, Glenkinchie 12 years old is a Single Malt offering a discovery tour of the Lowlands with its grainy notes, silky and creamy texture with an herbal and slightly tangy finale.

A fresh and classy whisky belonging to the Classic Malts Selection. This range offers an amazing overview of Scotland and its Malt whisky regions. Every Malt whisky typically expresses its origins through a peculiar, unique character and flavours. For every Single Malt, spring water, soil and time work their magic to capture the full essence of a land in a bottle.

Only 15 miles away from the Edinburgh Castle and the Scottish capital, the peaceful landscapes of barley fields in which sits the Glenkinchie Distillery look heavenly.

Glenkichie boasts of producing the “Edinburgh malt”. In 1825, two Lowlands farmers, George and John Rate, built a distillery they called Milton. In 1837, they renamed it and gave it the name of the stream still flowing today for the distillery: the “Kinchie”. Glenkinchie is today one of the few remaining distilleries still operating in the Lowlands. It is the only Scottish distillery to be managed by a woman, Kay Fleming. Its whisky owes its lightness of character to ones of the widest stills of Scotland. The unique character of Glenkinchie ranks the distillery in the Classic Malts Selection. Created more than 20 years ago, this selection recognises Single Malts crafted in the tradition of iconic distilleries, and offers the most impressive whisky styles Scotland has to offer.

Colour: bright gold.

Nose: exceptionally rich, light and sweet, with notes of malted barley, fresh grass and autumn smoke.

Palate: a slight dryness that does not wilt the freshness. Flavours reminiscent of late summer fruits and harvested fields, green wood and malted barley.

Finish: with a surprising warmth, dryness with a hint of spice and smoke.

Glenkinchie 12 years is more of an aperitive, and reveals treasures for the taste buds with a Tomme de brebis (sheep's milk cheese) or shellfish like razor clams. To be tried also with orange madeleines for an instant of relaxed tasting.
